Mother Tongue is a research-led curatorial project formed by Tiffany Boyle and Jessica Carden in response to individual periods of investigation in northern Scandinavia and West Africa. The project participated on the 2011/12 CuratorLab programme at Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design [Stockholm]. Mother Tongue presents exhibitions alongside discursive events and publications, each informing a critical practice in contemporary art and visual culture. The project has curated projects for and partnered with organisations including CCA: Centre for Contemporary Art Glasgow; Transmission Gallery, Glasgow; Malmö Konsthall; Africa In Motion Film Festival [Scotland]; Stills: Scotland’s Centre for Photography [Edinburgh]; Nordic Africa Institute [Uppsala] and Konsthall C [Stockholm]. Presently, both Tiffany and Jessica are doctoral candidates at Birkbeck, University of London and TrAIN: Transnational Research Centre for Art, Identity and Nation [UAL] respectively.
