When this kiss is over it will start again
It will not be any different, it will be exactly the same
It's hard to imagine that nothing at all
Could be so exciting, could be so much fun

[Excerpt from 'Heaven', Talking Heads, 1979]


Installation with sound equipment from my studio and a secondhand store in Zürich, a chair from the gallery's office was moved to the front space.
Visitors were invited to play the song Days by Television.

Music:
Television, Days, 3'12"
From the album Adventures, 1978 (Elektra)
Written by Tom Verlaine
