Word-Less is an exhibition that explores aspects of “blind” communication: narratives transmitted though gesture and/or symbolism rather than the written word. With its deliberate disconnect, the title of the show emphasizes and plays on ideas of tension and connection. Some works are an emphatic expression of this tension, while others suggest the displacement or negation of the written narrative.
