“How can one teach art? I thought of something else that doesn’t seem to be contained within one strict method or mode of transmission: literature.”

– Lili Reynaud-Dewar

This exhibition creates an unconventional anthology by challenging traditional writing structures and boundaries. It has to rebuild itself, it has to think again, it has to look again, language doesn’t have a formal place anymore.

The works shown are of diverse range, they have all grown from a fascination with language as their central medium or being used as a means to underpin the foundation of their practices.
