Screening on 13, 14, 18 & 25 October, 6.30pm–7pm
Siobhan Davies and David Hinton’s 2015 film installation The Running Tongue is presented as part of the Catharine Clark Gallery’s special exhibition Box Blur exploring the intersection of dance / movement and the visual arts.
Made in collaboration with 22 dance artists, the work takes as its starting point the image of a running woman. She travels through a familiar London cityscape of tube stations, housing estates, cafes and parks, but, as she runs, she undergoes many metamorphoses and witnesses a succession of curious scenes. Defying the usual conventions of cinematic form, the film is edited by a custom programmed computer which makes its own decisions about how to order the narrative.

‘…from the endurance of the runner to the detailed eloquence of gesture; [The Running Tongue] beautifully underlines the point of this entire show – which is that dance as a concept extends far beyond the presence of live bodies’ Judith Mackrell, The Guardian
