LIAR – The Psychogeography Of Silent Reading


LIAR – Paul Conneally Avignon Festival 2008

In LIAR Conneally explores cities and other spaces through the act of reading in public places.

Silent reading as psychosplacist intervention.

Originally performed in Avignon as part of the Avignon Festival 2008 Conneally has gone on to read silently in many other locations exploring the line between where it’s acceptable to read silently in public and where it is not.

What are the messages given out when someone decides to read to themself in a paticular place – home tube cafe shopping mall busy street sat down stood up top of a hill in a stream?

And how are the spaces and people passing through them changed by such reading?
