About

‘False Friends’

Opening Reception 6-11pm

London.

In linguistics, a ‘false friend’ is a shortened version of the expression ‘false friend of the translator’, referring to words in different languages that look or sound similar, but differ significantly in meaning. Reaching out for the familiarity of a similar sounding word in most cases can be semantically treacherous, but the brain always reaches for what it knows.

We live in a state of becoming, of having been, and therefore changing.
