Arnolfini presents the first major survey exhibition in the UK of work by Imogen Stidworthy. She investigates the structure of language, the subjectivity and nuances of linguistic formation, and how languages can be used as a kind of defence mechanism. Working predominantly with moving image and sound, the exhibition will present a survey of recent works, such as I Hate, originally commissioned for Documenta 12 in Germany, which shows photographer Edward Woodman relearning how to talk after losing his sense of speech following a cycling accident. Alongside this will be her recent works Get Here and Barrabackslarrabang, which looks at the modification of language, in this case by criminal gangs in Liverpool, in order to create a language barrier to protect themselves from the authorities.
