By analysing the work of a number of exceptional international artists, the exhibition addresses the challenge of popularising a theme apparently far from day-to-day interest: the relationship between language and reality. This is slippery ground, given that our culture is now mature and astute enough to no longer regard language as an image of reality, nor even reality itself as existing absolutely. Yet at the same time, the focus on “doing” in our society’s productive and economic activity leads us to overlook these issues and ignore the extent to which language influences our potential for communication and the content we want to express.
