Lena Herzog

Last Whispers Oratorio for Vanishing Voices, Collapsing Universes and a Falling Tree
from 21 April 2022
to 30 July 2022

Every second week the world loses a language. At an unprecedented rate, faster than the escalating extinction of many plant and animal species, our linguistic diversity – perhaps the most important means of self-knowledge – is eroding. American multidisciplinary, conceptual artist and photographer Lena Herzog presents Last Whispers, an experiential, immersive project dedicated to language mass extinction. A silent extinction, for silence is the form it eventually takes. Herzog gives voice to what has been silenced via a choral work that is, at once, deeply modern and traditional.
