Lost for Words
The exhibition consists of recycled words now collapsed into viral forms, devoid of linguistic meaning. Words that
once had control, were untrustworthy, devious, and out to mislead, have been neutered: their power made pictorial.
What was a glimpse into the overload of a repressed economy is now reduced to unstable form: the bacterial of
letters. Contact failed.
