Rishin Singh - in residence

Rishin Singh in residence at Errant Bodies

Over the last four months Rishin Singh has attempted to read all the printed material published by Errant Bodies Press. The following series of performances and installations address the questions: What do words about sound sound like? and Is it possible to build an environment out of words about the built environment?

The Collective Tongue

The Collective Tongue
isik . knutsdotter

Performance & Presentation: Saturday, February 14h - 19:00h

A travelling collection exploring the idea that our surroundings both internally and externally are sculpted through oral (the mouth) and aural (the ear) muscles. This concept is used to consider place, collectivity and materiality with the potential to produce a new language of informal architecture.

The project is developed at Errant Bodies through a series of public dreaming sessions. These sessions use sound and objects, working with the idea that sound and material have the ability to transcend the present, allowing the conscious and unconscious minds to merge. These public dreaming sessions will sculpt a social imaginary (The Collective Tongue) and be used to produce the final performance and presentation event.

Their work together reflects upon the role of participation in dialogues about social architecture and urban change constructing new forms of interdisciplinary working, whilst providing a practical social context for research. Together embarking on ideas and experiments regarding the notion of public, language and wider uses of creativity. These subjects have been explored in public spaces and with a series of responses using video, performance, installation, drawing, sculpture and sound.
