“What I’ve learnt; the more I was asked to talk specifically about my work, the more I have learnt how to not talk about it.”
A collection of sound recordings of studio visits with international artists, writers, curators and critics between 2008 and 2010 at the Piet Zwart Institute.

Selina Taylor (UK, 1986) lives and works in Brussels after two years studying an MFA at the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam.
Selina Taylor examines the physicality of artistic practice from how we invest in our encounter with the performing body from the person watching to the artist in the work. She investigates what remains beyond the ‘Bohemia’ of art making in comparison to the convened spaces that ‘natural’ conversation and ‘collective’ art making in current discourse takes place and how this may be reconciled with the need to be physical and immediate.
In her practice every movement has a conscious purpose, which produces action that can quickly become a form of choreography or dance.
Taylor’s current work relates to the politics of silence and the modes of learning in the act of exchange.
