Beyond Words
September 15 - October 30, 2004

Curators Ingrid Jenkner & Gaëtane Verna

This exhibition is organized in collaboration with Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery and is financially supported by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec.

The art in Beyond Words encourages viewers to think of language as something more than a transparent medium of communication. Each piece incorporates printed or handwritten text in ways that defeat a simple reading response. Letter forms, cursive script, and printed pages are transformed into sensuous, enigmatic, and even illicit “material.” Letraset collage, pulled threads, sandblasted glass, recorded sound, and video are some of the media represented. In order to read these works, viewers must pay attention to form and materials in addition to the text. Verbal unintelligibility becomes part of the overall meaning.  Featuring artists Gilbert Boyer, Ruth Cuthand, Paul de Guzman, Nelson Henricks, Elizabeth MacKenzie, Kelly Mark, Nadia Myre, Sylvia Ptak, and Rober Racine.
