Words are Angular Sharp Tenant by Rebecca Lennon

Words are Angular Sharp Tenant by Rebecca Lennon

Rebecca Lennon layers images, speech, text and sound to meditate on questions of selfhood, language, dis/order and choreography.

Sewing together diaristic footage, with gestures and body language, hums and verbal tics, associations and repeated, spiralling phrases, these works reject linearity to instead explore fragmentary, rhythmical, circular and bodily narratives.

In Rebecca Lennon’s hands, images, sounds and words are treated with equal attention. These materials are combined, reworked and repeated; meaning and connotation slip and destabilise. The artist creates a situation in which languages (visual and verbal) can be set into play with one another.
