Angelica Mesiti, ‘Mother Tongue’, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāma­ki, until the 8th of February 2021

Com­mis­sioned by Aarhus Euro­pean Cap­i­tal of Culture, Mother Tongue, a video work by the Buxton Contemporary Collection artist Angelica Mesiti, takes the songs in the Danish Højskolesangbogen (The National Folk High School Songbook) as its conceptual starting point. The Højskolesangbogen is the foundational anchor of the Danish tradition of fællessang (communal singing), which originated in the socialist movements of the late 1800s as a form of protest and is today a symbol of national identity and togetherness. To adhere to fællessang is to perform the vernacular of a collective ‘mother tongue’.
