In conversation with Aernout Mik

The second presentation of The Ongoing Conversation will take place on Tuesday 17 February when PierFrancesco Gava will have his solo exhibition In Principio Erat Verbum.

How are words transformed into power and how do they gain authority? What happens when images contradict sound or voice? What difference does it make to the political message that the person speaking the words is not the person mouthing the words on screen?

Gava’s videos at 1646 explore the performativity of the political and religious speech through the disembodiment of the voice and question the value of the spoken word in relation to its performer.

The show also includes a video conversation with the Duch artist Aernout Mik, who kindly collaborated with the artist on this project.

The Ongoing Conversation II offers a series of fast-paced one-day exhibitions conceived as a platform to show and share the interest of ongoing artistic research.
