‘Coatl’ is a Nahuatl (Aztec) word meaning “serpent” or “twin”. Here the Coatl is a group of disembodied teeth that proliferate and chatter silently, operated by unseen forces, as an unending internet meme. In the background a tapping drum beats an algorithm created from a random sample of internet searches for ‘water’ over the course of one hour from a selected location. The over saturated sheen of the teeth and glitchy movement of water drops reminds the viewer that they are not in a space of reliable symbolism.

Susannah Stark (UK)
Susannah is a visual artist based between London and Glasgow, UK. she works with moving image, sound and writing. her work gesticulates at historical events, exploring continuities and relocations, utilising the ambiguities and form of speech as a method of bringing into being questions surrounding images and image production. The works question the porosity of living bodies, objects, products and informations through the filter of language, or, often, the absence of it. She aims to create a space where voice and silence work with and against each other to destroy and create new meanings.
