The Past Is Singing In Our Teeth, Kate McMillan’s first solo exhibition in Berlin, extends the notion that artworks, objects and even smells can serve as an umbilical cord back in time, thus functioning as an intermediary into the past – in this case, a fictional past reinvented in the absence of women’s histories. Like a conjuring or a haunting, it seeks to draw a line around the things that sit at the periphery of our vision. In particular, it imagines a lost archive of women’s knowledges, a remembrance of which is triggered through the recovery of sacred objects and landscapes. A mixed-media collage, The Past is Singing in our Teeth reconstructs a labyrinth of lost things through a film-based installation incorporating projected films, photography, sound, performance and sculpture. During the exhibition opening, the sculptures will be ‘performed’ as musical instruments by Perth-based percussionist Louise Devenish based on a score written by Australian composer Cat Hope.
