Inside outsider language is an exploration into visual and verbal languages. By tying together language and the institution, it attempts to illustrate our dependence on codified references.
Communication in art, whether visual or verbal, uses these references, which we align with what has happened before.
A liminal state is one before a transition, a zone of ambiguity just outside the peripheries of common thought. Just as art advances beyond this threshold, this exhibition works to show how our current language and ability to 'read' are extended. Through large-scale installations and sculpture, the exhibition navigates recognizable gestures and language.
With a selection of London-based artists, the exhibition gathers site-specific and never-before seen works that explore this liminal state and the language structures we navigate.
The overall composition hints at the artists' expanded practices beyond what is immediately tangible.
