Artist Kate McMillan presents an exhibition of performance and installation at Arusha Gallery: The Past is Singing in our Teeth documents and explores the links between time and memory, and the potential of art to trigger memories that lie dormant within oneself.

McMillan has created a two-channel video work for the exhibition following a young girl’s journey as she rediscovers a powerful, mystical heritage from a time and history that is partly beyond conscious reach.

Supported by sculptures and sound performances, the installation reinforces the role of art as an active agent in the memory process.
