On three of the six video monitors in Accent Elimination, Nina Katchadourian and her parents practice and perform two scripts – written separately by each of Katchadourian’s foreign-born parents – which reveal the origins of her parents’ accents. Three other monitors in the installation show thirty-minute selections from the many weeks of lessons with their accent coach as the Katchadourians struggle to master each other’s accents.
