Nearly Native (2011), video performance (1min 06sec)
Zurich, Switzerland

In Nearly Native, the artist repeats the German phrase “Fischers Fritz fischt frische Fische”. In an effort to sound as fluent as possible, she begins to make mistakes, slowly deconstructing the sentence into almost nothing.

The performance is accompanied by English subtitles.

Nearly Native is part of the Forced Actions series of video performances.
