object + word
Flax Art Project Space, Belfast
19th - 27th May 2022
the object is still, stable, solid
an amalgamation of materials
shaped + formed, formed + shaped
a word is but a gathering of symbols
formed as an unheard sound
that echoes in the reader
we do not speak the language of object, they hum at an inaudible pitch
words act as a bridge between the seen + thought, the felt + understood
what is this space of reverie, this set of relations, fluctuating between object + words
The aim of this exhibition is to explore the conversation between objects and words.
