Tummy Rumble (To Me, Rubble)

Tummy Rumble (To Me, Rubble) was originally created for the exhibition Signals From The Periphery at the Tallinn Art Hall in July 2017. The installation consisted of a wall drawing (6 × 4m) and a screen with headset to display a video. The project is the result of a collaboration with writer Will Pollard.

Tummy Rumble (To Me, Rubble) narrates and illustrates a series of fictional after-hours encounters set within imagined versions of the Tallinn Art Hall and the club located in its basement. Its characters play a drunken game of association, passing through images and metaphors of the digesting body and of architectural form. These spatial fictions were represented on the wall of the exhibition with a diagram that also served, in the first instance, as a map for the plotting of the text. Drawing and writing are here the parallel instruments of a collaborative (and serendipitous) investigation into the abstraction of language and form.

As a final translation and documentation of the work, a book was published by Building Fictions.
Publication: 280 × 190mm, 52p.

The project was supported by the Stimuleringsfonds, Creative Industries NL.
