Theda Sandiford: Big Mouth

LOCATION: Art House Productions; 262 17th St, Jersey City, NJ

As a woman, I find it is often easier to make my way in the world by keeping my mouth shut. To simply grin and bare it when haters, well-meaning friends or co-workers say or do something insensitive.

With ‘Big Mouth’, I am all of it. The sass, the crass, the erudite and more than that aware. Aware of the language used to quiet me down. To remind me of what is, and most importantly, what isn’t being said. 

Exhibition Run Dates: September 6th- 29th

Artist Talk & Yarn Wrapping: Sunday, September 15, 1:00-3:00pm

Artist Talk & Yarn Wrapping: Saturday, September 21, 1:00-3:00pm

Big Mouth is a collection of one-sided conversations. As a woman, I find it is often easier to make my way in the world by keeping my mouth shut. To simply grin and bare it when haters, well-meaning friends or co-workers say or do something insensitive.

As a child, my father would say to me, “Better to be thought a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt”. So in keeping my mouth shut, I learned, to be seen, and selectively heard.

With ‘Big Mouth’, I am all of it. The sass, the crass, the erudite and more than that aware. Aware of the language used to quiet me down. To remind me of what is, and most importantly, what isn’t being said. 

Thanks to Big Mouth… look who has the last word now.
