The exhibition sums up a process of several months, in the course of the program’s residency at the Center, in which the students developed works as well as worked on curating the exhibition. Which Does Not Cease Not Being Written focuses on the relation between body and language, a theme that was formulated through a joint exploration of the concept of The Object Voice. Like the gaze or handwriting, the voice is an ontologically questionable object – an intermediate site between body and language. In itself, the voice is not a body, but a kind of second-order body, a recollection or notation of a body, that dissipates immediately upon its appearance. The voice is the material platform of language, a carrier of meaning, but in itself, it is shorn of all meaning. The works presented in the exhibition address that interim or hybrid space between body and language in different ways.
