'Appendix Songs', Group Show Curated by Tom K Kemp at PuntWG, Amsterdam

There’s a hypothesis that the appendixes of Homo habilis and our earlier ancestors could emit and receive radiation, allowing for a form of remote feeling over long distances, something that became vestigial as the voice gained primacy. If a telephone ‘speaks with its ears and hears with its mouth’, as the riddle suggests, the appendix was able to talk without either orifice, transmitting and receiving directly through the skin’s pores. Stress can cause acid reflux to abrade and mute the vocal cords, and as the throat quietens, the appendix sings along to other voices.
 
Appendix Songs is an exhibition touching on friendly abjection and sensing at a distance, with works by Mónica Mays, Susan Ploetz, Jean-Francois Peschot and Tom K Kemp, with a text by Radna Rumping.
