Tight-Lipped and Tongue-Tied, 2017

Holding an orange, a hand tells tales
Animated by words, images weave with one another
intertwining, pulling, altering each other.
A finger knots a meaning in one
Then drawing back, a loop starts to unravel.
A mouth repeats a gesture until a line is exhausted
leaving utterances void
yet, in the silence none of us is mute.

Tight-Lipped and Tongue-Tied is the final outcome from a three-week workshop through which a group of students of the first specialization year from the Fine Arts department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, searched for traces of historical matter in contemporary practice and how those findings can be reconfigured into something new.

At Museum Perron Oost, a train platform that became acknowledged as a monument thanks to the artist Joep van Lieshout, the students presented fragments from their research, collections of objects, images, and fictions that emerged from the recirculated and redistributed knowledge that sources of art history carry within. Drawing connective lines amid things and carefully choreographing narratives through space, the students intend to create connective ties between their works and the environment, presenting their distinct relations and understanding of space.
