The Cow's Tongue (2018)

The Cow's Tongue is a work that directly responses to the vernacular language used throughout South East Asia to describe the Chinese 9 dash line. It explores how language is used to colloquially discuss issues of global significance, illustrating complex political ideas through ‘simplistic’ and graphic language; in this case the terminology used is in reference to the Chinese Communist Party’s claims within the region. With China itself seen as the cow’s head, ‘The cow’s tongue’ is used to denote political, economic and geographic greed and hunger.
