Language and how it can reflect a cultural ethos, particularly the nuance of racial and national identities, is the primary subject in Bethany Collins’s multimedia practice. Her works exploring historical texts such as The Odyssey and “The Star Spangled Banner” prompt reflection on patriotism and individual position within national identity. Join Collins as she discusses the exhibition Evensong and the use of language in her works.
