tono lengua boca is an exhibition that pays special attention to the use of voice, musical composition and sound in the work of Wendelien van Oldenborgh. In parallel the trajectory of the exhibition, the first retrospective of the artist, shows the consolidation of a singular enunciation, the finding of one’s own timbre and artistic language. It was important that a catalogue echoed the acoustic particularity of the exhibition. Before thinking about text a publication was imagined exclusively dedicated to sound, made of the songs that appear in the film works, recovered and edited for this occasion. Apart from Injeção by Deize Tigrona, all the recordings on the album - even if a few are preexisting songs - were produced on set and therefore are almost documentary in character. The accompanying book bears essays and a poem reflecting the attitude of the work.

This catalogue - consisting of an LP and a book together - was published accompanying the exhibition: tono lengua boca, curated by Anna Manubens, 03.10.2019 - 05.01.2020 in CA2M Móstoles, Madrid.
