In Medium Medium, Linehan takes the audience on a guided tour in which he creates a performative dialogue between seven selected artworks on view and his own artistic work. The artworks speak to him, and he speaks back to them through the medium of dance, and by reciting poetic fragments from his 2013 book, A No Can Make Space.
Linehan engages with the artworks in a playful and mischievous way, dancing and talking in order to enter into diverse kinds of relationships between his moving body and object, creating links, parallels, slippages, and tangents. Linehan claims to establish a communication between different mediums, which are in various states of being alive or not alive.
