The Limp of A Letter
13 February 2015 - 31 May 2015

“The Limp of A Letter” is an installation that stems from the artist’s continuous
interest in the play with language. Here the language itself is used not as a tool to
build a linear narrative, but as a speculative substance, as one of the materials used
to create the work.
“The Limp of A Letter” departs from the linear basis of the language, which
represents rationalism, logic, sense and even power and moves to fragmentation,
dismemberment delay, disconnectedness. Here the intermission is the main act, the
backstage triumphs over the center stage, nonsense triumphs over the meaningful,
fragmentation over unity, isolated syllables over the linear language and distorted
patterns over logical constructions.
The line is kept blurry between staged and spontaneous, mimicry and fiction. The exhibition explores the opaque relationship between thought, language, design and the production of an object.
