In Mother Tongue, Zoë Croggon considers the human compulsion to divide and partition land. Croggon writes: “I am interested in the concept of the border, the map, the territory. My collage work is largely characterised by a ‘split’, where two contrasting images intersect and amalgamate. In the context of this body of work I consider the ‘split’ as a division, or border, introducing geographical, political, and historical meaning into the formal arrangement.”

Mother Tongue examines the interior and exterior borders that shape our lives, and interrogates their meanings—what they include and also what they exclude.
