[mouthfeel] is an exhibition of new and recomposed work by Glasgow-based artist Camara Taylor, forged through new and old collaborations with 皚桐 (Ai Túng), Sharif Elsabagh and Slag Hammers.

Camara’s practice builds around their research into archival documents, images, and fragments of language. They look particularly to those historical traces that register Black presence as a fugitive undercurrent of Scotland’s entanglement with racial capitalism. Their work, however, refuses the urge to index. In objects, reworked images, texts, sound and video, Camara instead looks to methods of material dissolution and failed speech: from the upending of analogue photographic processes to expose an image to liquid decay; to the visceral qualities of language as a bodily product.  

In [mouthfeel], a moving-image work shows the last gold coin to be produced by the Scottish Mint – minted to commemorate the country’s colonial Darien scheme – as it dissolves on a tongue. The exhibition contrasts the hard, opaque surfaces of steel and tinted glass with spit, rum, regurgitated beats and the layering of affective communication and presences.
