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.
