Mother’s Tongue and Father’s Mouth – Vol. I
To understand works of art as the instruments of language used by artists means to interpret them as means for communicating with the world and the self. Every artist develops his/her own reference system of language and thus his/her own degree of logic/non-logic, of utterance/assertion. The code of this language has to be found. The material encountered, the sentences or the abstract gestures to be read, are the starting point but not the endpoint of this search. Acquiring and appropriating an individual pictorial language to uncap one’s own thinking. Starting from our own language, we enter the world of possibilities of other people. Always based on a mélange of linguistic analysis and Freudian curiosity.
