As the thespian couple Rosencrantz and Guildenstern is confronted with the apparent closure of semi-fictional Café Answer, they find themselves caught in an ambiguous situation between lucidity and délire, in which, with strings attached, they approach the absence of certainty with an attempt to create meaning through linguistic play and soundful experiment. These two marionettes are the main characters in a story presented through photography and an audio work in Luzie Meyer’s second solo exhibition at Sweetwater, presented on the occasion of Gallery Weekend 2022.
