The Way Some People TalkYonatan Sagiv and Oded Wolkstein in conversation
In the exhibition “Hundred Muscle Army”, Effi and Amir tell the human stories of those whose identity has been deconstructed into their vocal apparatus and reduced to a single sound, which they can or cannot produce, and the way the system looks at them.
In the book “The Way Some People Talk”, which starts on the day he lost his voice, Yonatan Sagiv traces the silenced voice, which is later revealed during its restoration journey as a black box of deletions, scars and silences.
