Allora & Calzadilla: Foreign in a Domestic Sense

Allora & Calzadilla’s ‘Foreign in a Domestic Sense’ features sculpture, performance, photo and video works.  The exhibition continues the artists’ ongoing investigation into the politics of language in public speech. In this new body of work, the uncanny vibrancy of the gestural interacts with a wide range of materials (bat guano, copper, ceramic, wax, electric transformers and industrial remnants). Moving from the performative to the indexical and back, Allora & Calzadilla take the social, political and cultural as a conceptual base and juxtapose it to the incorporated singularity of the human voice.
