Science Gallery London are diving into the orifice with artists and scientists to explore the visceral space of the mouth, and everything inside it.
We put our mouths through endless daily rituals – they are prodded, poked, and re-aligned, brushed, scraped and refined. But this remarkable portal to our gut is also the gateway to self-expression and communication. Our mouths are powerful tools that can inspire everything from love and ecstasy to fear and loathing. From fillings and tooth tattoos to split tongues and pierced lips, mouths provide visual cues about who we are, and where we have come from.
Science Gallery London’s 2016 pre-opening season explores the mouth as a key portal to our lives, our unique identities, and self-expression. Season events, activities and installation will be held in and around Guy’s campus at Kings College London, with other campus venues to be confirmed.
They are especially interested in projects that explore themes and topics including salivating mouth, healthy/unhealthy, sensational, future and many more mouths.
Deadline: 13 March 2016
