To speak with the moon in one’s mouth is to articulate a generous tongue.

The moon, as a reflective celestial disc, emits no light of herself instead mirrors the light of others to generously offer guidance throughout the darkest hours.

Moon in my Mouth reflects upon and celebrates the illuminations we glean from each other, from community and through kinship. It is a project that looks beyond patriarchal traditions and towards matriarchal wisdoms. Housed within an agenda of curatorial activism, it is a project that sees collaborative healing on the horizon, rising like a convalescing moon. It is a project that dismantles the foundations and strictures of the academy and from the rubble returns to the schoolhouse embedded in nature.
