From a throat of flesh, 2018

From a throat of flesh is a polyphony of voices exploring the voice beyond speech. We move through voiced expressions that, socially and historically, have been subject to acts of disciplining and ”civilizing”, taken as pretext to categorize people as barbaric, brute and hysterical. Our voices are our sounding flesh. A choir, but not for singing. Voices, not speaking. We will howl, hum, bark and croon through the ideological landscape that speech and language has tied the voice to.
