Opening: Thursday 26th September 6–8pm

Tell it slant is a group exhibition centred round the theme of language. The exhibited work has been produced by ten emerging artists and curators, who are all either current or past gallery interns at PP/S, Dublin. These practitioners have utilised the project space at PP/S as a platform to engage with ‘language’ as an open-ended thematic concept. The exhibition is presented as a manifestation of varied and multi-faceted interpretations, addressing a broad range of subject matter. This encompasses focus on communicative processes, literary sources, and the role of language in animal/human relationships, cultural differences and emotional states. Further emphasis is placed on issues directly pertaining to medium and process, such as the exploration of image-making processes and technological forms.

It is intended that the viewer will be enabled to consider, in expanded terms, the role of language as a basic (but hugely influential) construct within each artist’s individual practice. Collaboration is paramount to the exposition of these different viewpoints and perspectives on a central, overarching theme. It is this collective, unifying stance which provides a contextual relevance for the exhibition.

The exhibition is the outcome of a unique pedagogical component of the Pallas Projects/Studios Intern Programme, in which participants self-direct an exhibition project, via guidance and workshops with PP/S curators. The aim is to test and utilise real-world skills and development in their particular area be it as an art-maker, writer, curator or coordinator. Pallas Projects/Studios is an artist-run organisation dedicated to the facilitation of artistic production and discourse, via the provision of affordable artists studios in the city centre, and curated projects.
