Phonograph, wax cylinder, plywood, bricks, 514 × 300 × 50 cm

Phoenix is an installation consisting of a stage made of plywood sheets laid on red bricks, where a wax cylinder phonograph is placed. Once activated, the recorded voice of someone speaking in tongues is broadcast. Mentioned in the New Testament’s Acts of the Apostles, speaking in tongues is a form of praying that is performed aloud in a language unknown to the speaker; it is practiced most notably in Methodist churches.

Phonographe, cylindre de cire, contreplaqué, briques, 514 × 300 × 50 cm

Phoenix est une installation composée d’une scène en feuilles de contreplaqué posées sur des briques rouges, sur laquelle est placée un phonographe à cylindre de cire. Une fois activé, il diffuse la voix enregistrée d’une personne parlant en langues. Cette pratique, mentionnée dans les Actes des apôtres du Nouveau Testament, consiste à réciter une prière à voix haute dans une langue inconnu de son locuteur ; elle a cours plus particulièrement dans les églises méthodistes.
