Mother Tongue: Bodies Beyond Words

An immersive, multi-disciplinary exhibition that explores language from a feminist perspective, delving into its connection to female body.

Language is a potent tool that forms our perceptions of the world including the female body. Just as language constructs complex meanings with words, bodies, too, are constructed; instead of words they are constructed by society through power dynamics. In this exhibition the body is activated and takes centre stage, in a way that is not bound by the structures of patriarchal society, a poetic language in which multiple meanings prevail. Mother Tongue features a divers range of works across media of painting, sculpture, photography, video, text, textile, performance and sound. inviting viewers to participate n a multi-faceted dialogue that goes beyond spoken or written words, encouraging a new contemplation of the relationship between language and the body.
