Abstract

The Language of Silence highlights the potential of silence as an active agent through which political exigencies may be explored. Through understated, sometimes deliberately obscured works, the exhibition presents poetic commentaries on current contexts which hold personal significance for the artists. Hong-Kong born artist Lin Li entwines autobiography with broader concerns, questioning the possibility of attaining a free voice. London born Sulaïman Majali works with sculpture, film and performance to negotiate the challenge of translating across cultures and envision a mythology of an imagined community. Zimbabwean writer Tawona Sithole extends an invitation to reveal what might be contained within silence.
