Mar Arza

(…)

October 31, 2008 - December 6, 2008

Meessen De Clercq Gallery is pleased to present Mar Arza's work for the first time in Belgium, in an exhibition where she explores submerged language arising from the interlines, as this blank space in between text that allows second readings and hidden meanings.                                    

Arza's oeuvre comprises an intense debate around visual and material dimensions of language. Through the use of books -as objects, as containers, as metaphors- she establishes a dialogue with the written text in order to break the rigid linearity of its format, and therefore to widen the concept of what it is thought as a book. If language forms thought, freeing the limits of language in every single direction will increase the scope of thought.                                                                                                                                                                         ...To read more, please download the PDF...
