Goodbye to Language consists of five handmade books that use language as a metaphor for the everyday. The books refer to a language that Kate has studied – German, Italian, Spanish, French and Swedish, and the words in the books are translated into these languages. The books include photographs of ordinary events and observations taken in each country. The books talk about memory loss and dementia, about losing daily experiences, images and words.
The books are titled Ohne Titel, La Bella Figura, I Remember Spain, Goodbye to Language and I Hope You Don’t.
