Edition 2 aims to perform and concretize words, creating ‘a species of centaur – half materials, half words’ (Sigmar Polke). Using fragments of spoken words to create dissonance and resonance between text, and object, meaning can articulated in visual configurations in which ‘the purity of words is corrupted and re-performed, in a constant dialogue between them all’.

Salon de Textes  is ‘a ‘laboratory, workshop, forum, a ‘nuptial chamber’. Artists are invited to respond to the similarities and dissimilarities in the rhythm of  words created vocally and textually; exchanging signs that make them eternally discursive.

This project is curated by Delpha Hudson (in association with other independent artists and CAZ; supported by ALIAS’ series Artists’ Hubs taking place across Cornwall). Cornwall Autonomous Zone: http://www.cazart.org.uk/
