A Flower in My Mouth

Opening: Fr, 12 April 2019, 8pm

A Flower in My Mouth is a collaboration between Mehraneh Atashi, Sara Giannini and Jacopo Miliani. The project brings together their research on the language of flowers, censorship, and occultism from different socio-political contexts. Across centuries and geographies, flowers have been employed to speak about the unspeakable. The language of flowers is a metaphorical praxis aimed at concealing, but also used to circulate forbidden words, images and ideas. Evoking the encrypted semiology of flowers, the exhibition is conceived as a speculative maze leading to a space named “the bar.” Whereas the maze lingers on the slippages of language and communication, the “bar” is a platform space presenting visual and oral constellations by the curators and invited guests.
