AT TONGUE TIDE!!! CINEMA FLUX! all invited!
on the Roof*
A special film session with poetry, performance, and sensorial cinema, reinventing the language constantly, synchretic, diverse and complex. Visual statements, social engaged artistic consciousness, THE OTHER VANGUARD*
Tongue Tide invites us all to play a little more with language, and to ponder other languages besides English. It’s a must-see for writers and wordsmiths and is well worth the trip to Long Island City.
Tongue Tide also includes a pile of poetry books and literary zines, encouraging visitors to take a risk and leaf through the pages of an author whose name you don’t recognize.
Queens is the most linguistically diverse area on the planet. No other place boasts so many languages in such close proximity, something Rashedul Hasan and Dan Silverman illustrate in “We Are the Queens of New York” (2017), a map piece where dots of different colors represent these many varied languages.
An intriguing artist book by Magali Duzant, A Light Blue Desire (2017), complies blue bromides from across the globe, and blue postcards featuring some of the selections are available for visitors to take home.
Nina Ross’s video piece “Untitled #1 (Fish)” (2017) shows a woman filleting a fish and learning Norwegian by getting directions for each next steps in that language. She’s not fluent, and we watch her linger on words she doesn’t recognize, then learn and internalize them by doing.
Tongue Tide continues at Flux Factory (39-31 29th Street, Long Island City) through July 30.

Inspired by Flux Factory’s location in Queens, NY -- the most language-dense area in the world -- Tongue Tide explores the multitude of ways in which artists engage with language, addressing both its tide-like ebb and flow as well as its limitations.
Investigating the ways in which we experience, use and understand words, the projects will take many forms including: games, performances, photography, installation, neon sign, nomadic library, opera, karaoke booth, artists books, online dictionary, video installation, walks, conversations over meals, visual storytelling workshops and more.
