Lúa Coderch

The Girl With No Door On Her Mouth

For The Girl With No Door On Her Mouth Lúa Coderch recovers a character she invented back in 2012 which allowed her to explore issues related to the use of voice and speech. The girl without a door in her mouth appears for the first time when reading a text by Anne Carson in which she talks about the nymph Echo, who was left voiceless, but not because she could no longer make sounds, but because she could only repeat what others have already said, that is, that she was deprived of the ability to make sense. In general The Girl With No Door On Her Mouth refers to the lack of criteria, the verbal incontinence and the possibility, or the inability, to speak sincerely and meaningfully for others. For this Coderch resorts to concatenations of tubes, simulating a phonation device that can only emit an inarticulate sound -not yet a word- a collection of cushions dyed with the technique of tye and dye as silences or capitulations, a plant collection used to treat mouth and throat illnesses, a stage from which to speak or listen, a series in the process of banal and worn discourses recorded on vinyl and a video that takes as a starting point the mouth piece Not I, by Samuel Beckett.
