Figures of Speech

The body of work Figures of Speech can be described as the result of a longterm examination of processes that occur, when ‘objects’ start shifting their form, materiality, meaning, description, understanding, role, agency… Largely based in a performative practice of writing – of formulating and reformulating of ideas – the works involve 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. Simultaneously there is a continuous development of a formal language in relation to the content.
