Forming a loose trilogy with Rankus’s two previous works (Naked Doom and She Heard Voices), Nerve Language furthers his visual investigation into the ambiguous mingling of inner and outer worlds. In strikingly composed images employing tableaux vivant, assemblage and collage, Rankus fabricates a universe where the human body does not possess a discrete boundary, but is imagined into objects, causing the living subject to contemplate its own objectness. The soundtrack, composed by Bob Snyder, provides a wry commentary on Rankus' vision.
