Building on and extending Please Queue Here‘s inaugural project Tactile Amnesia that examined how contemporary artists have developed a novel fascination with traditional materials, LINGUA FRANCA delves into the revival of the narrative in contemporary art.

About

Please Queue Here‘s second exhibition LINGUA FRANCA proposes a study of the nascent trend of Neo-narrational practices in art. Steering away from the structuralist treatment of language in the art of the 1960s, the works included in this show emphatically and intentionally return to utilising language as a material through which narratives and storylines become the subject. Instead of deconstructing language and thereby highlighting its literal usage, they address metaphorical utterances that represent meanings and create narrational structures.

LINGUA FRANCA shows works by James Sirrell, Miriam Naeh, Paolo Salvador, Phillip Reeves, and Rachel Cheung and is curated by Charlotte Knaup.
