In my Mouth the Words are Melting is the first presentation of all three works from artist Sofía Córdova’s dawn_chorus trilogy, an epic series of videos and installations. The dawn_chorus trilogy reconsiders the past’s revolutionary potential; scrutinizes capitalism’s historic depredations against the Global South and their present-day climatic blowback; and explores the promises and failures of technology and ritual in a post-apocalyptic world. Sofía Córdova is a Puerto Rican-born, California-based interdisciplinary artist who regularly makes work with performance, music, video, photography, sculpture, and installation. Drawing from literature and poetry to pop culture and music, Córdova conveys a plurality of lived experiences in her works that help to guide us as we face a changing relationship to our planet.
