For a whole year the Flemish theatre maker Kyoko Scholiers [Antwerp, 1981] travelled around with a phone booth that she had built. In this setting she would have conversations with men, women and children who have severed all ties with society – either forcedly or by their own will. Among these battered souls were detainees, refugees and drifters, but also children in foster care, patients and prostitutes. From the many hours of recorded talks Kyoko then distilled a number of fragments.
Misconnected is her installation, made up of four phone booths moving slowly along a set of tracks. Visitors step inside and listen for five minutes to the tales and en lamentations callers once confided to Kyoko. Passers-by see an intriguing landscape with phone booths slowly traversing it.
