ABOUT THE WORK
2 Proust is an audio-visual work that takes two different English translations of an extract from Proust’s In Search of Lost Time and places them side by side. Through this doubling, the work creates a semiotic disruption that subverts the acts of reading and listening.
Translations by Lydia Davis and C.K. Scott Moncrieff & T Kilmartin.
