Takeover: I. Tongue Takeover I Am the Mouth II
Agnieszka Polska

6 Minutes

Repeat: Dec 15-16 ET

I Am the Mouth II features a pair of disembodied lips that are half-submerged in water, whispering seductively about the mechanisms by which words, in the form of sound waves, make their way through various materials including the viewer’s own body. The steady tone of the voice emanating from the lips hypnotizes the listener, revealing the subliminal influence artists have on their audiences.

This screening is part of Tongue Takeover, the first chapter of the online program Takeover curated by Julian Ross for e-flux Video & Film, and unfolding in six chapters between September 22 and December 15, 2022, with the films and videos of each chapter streaming for two weeks.
