Cecilia Bullo: Bleach Those Tongues: Dystopian Assemblages
Gypsum auras surround the cold wild beast, stroking its benign petrified fur
Luscious in that space, a configuration without potions
The germs of hierarchical seed – sprouting through hungry wounded flesh
Be-coming – Intense
On the smooth striated plateau – said she ‘bleach those tongues’
Bleach Those Tongues: Dystopian Assemblages is a new body of work by Cecilia Bullo based on the philosophical and botanical concepts of the Rhizome. This new work explores her personal displacement, archaeomythology, sacred spaces and urban shamanism. At its core, Bullo’s work interrogates healing mechanisms involving rituals and signifiers in the context of social issues, and the cultural challenges faced by displacement and migration – especially of women.
