Forum 71 - Susan Philipsz
The sound installation "One and the Same" by Susan Philipsz (Scottish, b. 1965) is based on a medieval Scottish folk song known variously as “The House Carpenter,” “The Demon Lover,” and “James Harris.” The song recounts the story of a married woman who is seduced by a former lover (the devil in disguise) and abandons her husband and son.
