A WORD IS A SHADOW THAT FALLS ON A LOT OF THINGS
The question at the heart of this group exhibition evolves around identity and how it is expressed through language.
How are issues of identity explored in contemporary art? How do representations of human existence maintain a physical connection to an immediate counterpart? In how far are societal norms inherent in an artwork addressed in the context of an exhibition?
The potential of language is made visible through rearrangement, translation and repetition in these works. Together the artists address and explore the apparent shifts in perspective between representation and the material, as well as between image production and text in and around the Ausstellungsraum Klingental. A supplementary programme, consisting of performances and readings, aims at activating and mediating the space and its surroundings.
The exhibition is supported by Futurum Stiftung and Stiftung Temperatio.
Jan Hofstettler accompanies this project on behalf of the Ausstellungsraum Klingental.
