Always Mysteries of the Tongue (commissioned by HOME projects for the Granada Foundation galleries) is a new presentation of ceramics, drawing, painting and collage, to explore the complexities of communication using elements from science fiction.
Borrowing from a wide range of contemporary, historical and futuristic sources, the work explores different ways of depicting and constructing language.
Using elements from three different science fiction texts as a framework from which to remix elements of speculative storytelling, Always Mysteries of the Tongue is presented across two fictional time periods, both set in futures far from now. The project is an imaginary pictorial language system, presented firstly in the Utopian year of 2819 and then nine hundred years later when information has been lost and the imagery is taken out of context and rendered into decorative abstract forms, using repetition, speculation and collage.
