TerminalSulcus-crop1

As a child Beatrice Haines’ grandparents would regularly prepare sandwiches. One day she was horrified to discover that the succulent meaty filling she enjoyed was in fact bovine tongue and not the ham she suspected. Eating meat seemed strange enough, but the sensation of tasting another animal’s tongue with your own felt bizarre.

Years later this experience inspired an artwork exhibited in a kitchen. Terminal Sulcus consisted of over 700 wax casts of human tongues lining the inside of a fridge.

Now Terminal Sulcus is being brought to Science Gallery London’s MOUTHY season, and visitors will be able to cast their very own tongue during drop-in workshops within the exhibit, inviting them to consider what their tongue really says about them, and their health.
