Tamarin Norwood uses language and objects to articulate the gap between the familiar and the unknown. Informed by her training in linguistics and translation, her works close in on this gap by disrupting their own narratives – videos with mismatched subtitles; translations that don't quite reach; books that neither begin or end; objects that look somehow out of place; lectures that refuse to make proper sense. Tamarin's work plays at keeping a distance while coaxing the viewer to delve inside and explore.
