A conversation about the work of James Webb between the artist himself and Anne Szefer Karlsen, recorded in Paris August 10th, 2009.
Webb creates a special relation to his first hand audience, as most of his works outside of the white cube are un-announced. The works are both site- and time-specific, and to the rest of us, his works become stories from stages and scenes retold through documentation and word of mouth.
This brief conversation deals with several aspects of his work, but focus on his project There’s No Place Called Home* which is an ongoing world-wide intervention using incongruous foreign birdcalls broadcast out of speakers concealed in local trees.
James Webb’s work There’s No Place Called Home* was part of the 3rd AiM International Biennale Festival Exhibition, "A Proposal for Articulating Works and Places" Curated by Abdellah Karroum :
