Between the different works of Falke Pisano's series "Figures of Speech" there is a circulation and exchange of language, ideas and forms. A transfer from one work to another often involving a change of status, a reflection within a different context or a further elaboration on an idea. Several formulations come back in different works; formulations of ideas for works become works; descriptions of works are used in preceding or following works and there is an exchange between descriptive or explanatory texts about the work and the work itself.
Falke Pisano's work proceeds primarily from an interest in the constructive potential of thought and the possibilities of constructing and solving problems in the field of language by using an analytical and documentary approach in her exploration of the relationship between language and image in order to rethink the position of art today. Through her work with language Falke Pisano activates different features characteristic of it - allowing her to explore multiple presentation forms: performance, reading, lecture, installation, publication, construction of abstract sculptural models, and so forth.
When Europe Speaks with One Voice
Die Veranstaltungsreihe untersucht die strategische Verwendung von historischem Material im Rahmen künstlerischer Praxen. Anhand von Vorträgen soll thematisiert werden, wie bildende Künstler gegenwärtig historisches Material benutzen um aktuelle Diskurse zu befragen oder zu unterminieren, und welche narrativen Modelle von (Kunst-)Geschichte dieser Beschäftigung zugrunde liegen.
When Europe Speaks with One Voice wird veranstaltet von Lucie Kolb und Romy Rüegger.
