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.
‘False Friends’ is an exhibition considering the shared languages between contemporary practice, and consumer culture in 2020. Placing image based practices in dialogue with artists considering commodification, retail and idiosyncrasies in contemporary society.
