Wearing my tongue is a performative project where language and the use of it are protagonists. Produced by Jacopo Miliani and curated by Johanna Caplliure, the exhibition proposal originates in the story about how one of the most popular garment and incarnation of everlasting youth: jeans, have been transformed throughout the history of its uses.
