Synopsis: In this video I collaborated with a person who doesn’t speak Mandarin, my native language. I whispered a personal story into his ear in Chinese. He then imitated the sounds he heard, and spoke out without knowing the meaning. When he mispronounced words, I repeated them. Afterwards, I had a Chinese speaker translate what could be understood back into English. The translation appears as subtitles in the video. The story is of a homosexual encounter I experienced in Paris while visiting the George Centre Pompidou. The video addresses a specific body gesture which implies but not confirm the relationship between two male bodies. The gaps between the translation and the original story leads viewers to speculate and to try to reconstruct the missing parts of the event.
