A group exhibition of text-based works
An exhibition exploring the exploitation of the meanings and ambiguities of words.
Language and Art have never lived too far away from one another and have often collided or intersected, producing thought-provoking and influential artworks.

It offers a glimpse into how artists manipulate text, adapting it to generate new narratives and repurposing it to take on new forms…
