Alphabetum VII: Writing Writing
With daring choices and an inventive programme, West does not present easy, accessible art. The polyphonic set-up makes the coherence clear and challenges the public to think through art.
Parataxis is akin to taking different objects, images or sounds and placing them together in order to create new meaning. It is the the jump between the meaning of other objects, their collocation creating new implied meaning. The exhibition Writing Writing in the Alphabetum is the starting point for a new collabaritive work by visual artist Thijs Jaeger and sound artist Hendrik Hohlfeld.
Special for Hoogtij!
