September 10 – 25, 2016.
1066 Contemporary Arts Festival Hastings UK | curated by Christopher Winter.
The group exhibition, A New Language explores language shifts and cultural changes – and those instigated by the Hastings invasion of 1066. The group of international artists descend on Hastings as an ‘artistic invasion’, with their works investigating themes of acceptance, alienation and displacement in foreign culture. BORIS+NATASCHA’s work from their Oracle series, Words Lie, is a frottage from the grave of Oscar Wilde, created in 2010 (when it was still possible to ‘touch’ the tombstone). This delicate work on paper questions our relationship to dialogue: our inner dialogues, those that we have ‘in the world’ and moreover, those that are otherworldly.
