Filmed in the Danish city of Aarhus, Angelica Mesiti's video installation resembles a kind of open book. Mother Tongue is like a musical score, drawing on ideas such as harmony and dissonance to generate an image of juxtaposed social realities.
Join co-ordinating curator Ane Tonga as she discusses Mesiti’s rich and rhythmic work that ‘reflects a contemporary society in which individuals make powerful efforts to retain and translate cultural connections in new places.’
Places are limited. Please RSVP here with your membership number.
