Language in Art: Weighted Words

Fancy a bit of culture this weekend?

The new Weighted Words exhibition, which runs until June 10th at the Zabludowicz Collection in London, features pieces by artists who explore language and words within their creations. Glenn Ligon‘s works feature heavily.

According to the Zabludowicz Collection website,

Weighted Words seeks to focus on the affect of language, rather than its purely cerebral aspects. The works in the exhibition deliberately seek to elicit emotional, visceral or somatic responses, rather than foregrounding concerns for semiotics or linguistics as such. The works use language in singular ways, through written text and spoken word as well as via its absence or vagaries.”
