Mouthings: a book of conversations

Tina Bass

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Sources and developmental origins are left behind in Tina Bass' fleet set of scenes cut from conversations with her twin sons covering just over a year. What seemed to the poet worth archiving becomes art-action, a journal which opens at the threshold of state schooling and continues onwards. Coming across these tiny exchanges of power, acquisition, socialisation and play, we can read them in unravelling ways: as tiny pieces from a sequence of conversation novels which were somewhere splintering and unifying: as the unsystematic studies or emblem of a parent; as an investigative diagram of articulation.
