CAMPLE LINE is delighted to present two works in our upstairs gallery over the weekend of 17-18 June, which foreground the young voice:
Untitled (Soul), circa 1973 – a rare sound-based work by artist Ana Mendieta (1948-1985) – created during Mendieta’s time working with students at Henry Sabin Elementary School in Iowa City in the US, and including recordings of the children’s thoughtful and amusing perceptions on the soul.
Seizing Hold of a Memory as It Flashes Up, 2010 – a blind embossed print made by Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen using the speech that twelve-year old Severn Suzuki, daughter of Japanese Canadian science broadcaster and environmental activist David Suzuki, delivered to representatives of 172 countries at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Ana Mendieta’s short black and white film Parachute, 1973, made in collaboration with the Henry Sabin Elementary students, will be screened on Sunday 18 June.
With grateful thanks to Galerie Lelong, New York, and the Estate of Ana Mendieta, and Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen.
