The group show Songs, Balloons & Broken Tablets is formulated on a projection of the literal as a form of poetics. Actual verses, floating balloons and tablets - from pre-historic to the digital - are present as objects, moving images, voices, textures, sonic structures and their materialization.
Associations, flow; the exhibition suggests cross-connections between things that at first seem to diverge. It encourages the subtlety and imaginative ambiguities of the collective presence. Towards systemic manipulations and post-truth politics, the works of Soohyun Choi, Alex Kuusik and Rebecca Wilcox stand with articulations that intend to displace the same grounds that these politics are based on.
Focus is placed on decontextualization and recontextualization in a game of non-authorship. All three artists reflect on the systemic ‘violence’ of production and contemplate the possibilities of interfering and altering given realities, triggering new, unexpected political imaginaries.
