Dead Tongue is a new video work by internationally acclaimed Australian born, London based artist Christian Thompson.

Dead Tongue was conceived during the Kaldor Public Art Project ‘Marina Abramovic in residence’ program during which Thompson was one of twelve Australian artists to be mentored by the renowned performance artist. This specially commissioned video work comprises two components; an original track recorded by Thompson in Oxford, England, where he sings in the endangered Bidjara language of his people, and a stunning visual work filmed in Sydney, Australia.
