The Double-Mouth

Collaborations between students from Bergen Academy of Art and Design & Instituto de Artes, Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro

March 12th - 17th, 2013
Opening: March 12th, 7pm
USF Verftet, Georgernes Verft 12, 5011 Bergen, Norway

The exhibition is developed from research on the topic of voice, text and collectivity. It aims to question the conditions of voice, and the complex dynamics of the spoken. Central to the works is an investigation of the gaps between sound and sense, between structures of language and the sensual body, and between a physical interior and a social exterior. Voice is understood as fundamentally multiple, acting as the primary means for the poetical, and the affective exchange between oneself and the other.

The collaborations amplify such views by taking on the challenges of finding points of contact across distances and nations, and of figuring the possibility of a shared language.

Organized by Ricardo Basbaum and Brandon LaBelle, as part of the shared course "Voice, Text, Collectivity", Bergen-Rio de Janeiro, Fall 2012.
The exhibition will travel to Rio de Janeiro in May for an exhibition at Galeria Cândido Portinari.
