KING LOST HIS TOOTH pays subversive homage to the oeuvre of Brion Gysin, who, along with William S. Burroughs, invented the 'cut-up' consisting of haphazard assemblage of words and phrases cut from a given paragraph. The first part of the video follows the classic 'cut-up' technique and for the second part, a new maneuver was applied: shuffling letters within words, creating different sentences where nonsense and new meanings emerge through random or intentional syntax formations.

Gheith Al-Amine born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1973, is a video artist, filmmaker, radio dj and art critic.

T.S.T.L. fools around with overintellectual conceptual art, unveiling its obsoleteness, through the use of a canvas, two acrylic tubes (black + white), a human voice, a Melodica, a pocket trumpet, lots of nonsensical words and a self-referential phrase!
