‘The Language of Silence’
   September 12 – September 18

  The Virginia Gallery
    45 Virginia Street, Glasgow G1 1TS

The Language of Silence highlights the potential of silence as an active agent through which political exigencies may be explored. Through understated, sometimes deliberately obscured works, the exhibition presents poetic commentaries on current contexts which hold personal significance for the artists.

Hong-Kong born artist Lin Li entwines autobiography with broader concerns, questioning the possibility of attaining a free voice. London born Sulaïman Majali works between sculpture, film and performance art to negotiate the challenge of translating across cultures, and envisions a mythology of an imagined community. Zimbabwean writer Tawona Sithole extends an invitation to reveal what might be contained within silence.
