Construction and Deconstruction of language
Languitecture is a fascinating new exhibition exploring the Construction and Deconstruction of language through visual arts, music, poetry and more.
Seven artists, musicians, writers and software developers have delved into the interconnections of their mother-tongues: Spanish, Arabic, English and German.
Languitecture is inspired by anthropology, philology and linguistics, aiming to naturally connect to a broad audience because communication and reinvention of culture is a prevailing and current issue. Built on the notion of art as a language of images and rhythms, the authors are driven by the curiosity to witness an accelerated evolving layering of languages, cultures and media develop into space. From sculptures, sound installations, dance, visual art and more, the exhibition seeks to experiment on how different cultures might battle, influence, connect or align using a fundamental and universal element of culture: language.
