This exhibition, performance and critical writing event of emerging and mid-career South Australian practitioners explores the potent relationship between text and art. Responding to a curated selection of writing from notable artists and theorists; each artist will conceive an ambitious work that transforms meaning and translation whilst echoing the principles of the original text. Each piece of writing touches on themes of ongoing critical and artistic concern – melancholia, displacement, identity, culture and language. For this exhibition artists will be challenged to experiment with the very process of art making whilst considering the creative potential of language.
