Le Pouvoir du Langage – Le Langage du Pouvoir

21 January - 12 March 2022

Group show, mfc-michèle didier, Paris (F)


Le Pouvoir du Langage – Le Langage du Pouvoir is an exhibition about the singular relationship that the artists can have with the text, writing and language.
Beyond a fast reading, the works presented here offer above all an experience, since they borrow the form of the text, of the story, but also of the speech, of the harangue or of the prosopopoeia for different purposes. Each one of the artists maintains a distinct relationship with the language. The artists deploy a critical content proposing a statement or an invitation given to be read in epistolary form, under the form of the rhetoric or declamation, under the one of political slogans or in the form of aphorisms. With the exceptional participation of the American artist Jenny Holzer, the exhibition brings together four other artists: Alex Cecchetti, Benny Nemer, Wesley Meuris, Antoni Muntadas
