First published by Publication Studio Rotterdam in August, 2019
Unbidden Tongues publishes previously produced yet relatively uncirculated work by cultural practitioners busy with questions relating to civility and civic duty. It is the notion of the upstanding citizen herself that takes centre stage, and what it is to appear public (or not) within the standardisation and regulation of civic life—particularly so in relation to language. While weary of the structures that deem certain tongues wild, and aware of contradiction, the series defends the trained tongue at the same time. Not wayward in its utterances, but assuredly self-determined, in a manner of speaking. And so the tongue persuades and persists, forked and all, though nothing like as if it were bidden.
