Description

"What languages do you speak? Do you speak the language of your parents? Your grandparents? Ngugi wa Thiong'o says in his book Decolonising the Mind that language is both a means of communication and a carrier of culture. When learning a language, we learn much more than words. Besides being verbal, language can be made up of symbols, non-verbal sounds and actions. In this exhibition works by Alter Boy, Fayen d’Evie, Nastaran Ghadiri, Josh Ophel and Zou Mat navigate between languages with empathy and creativity exploring what language can tell us about ourselves and our environment."
