Opening: 24th March 2016, 6-9pm
The objects Frederique Pisuisse created for this exhibition series that began on the Mezzanine have migrated to the Ground Floor and will be on STANDBY until activated by various events hosted in the space.
An analogy with tools sheds light on the nature of words. When we think of tools in a toolbox, we do not fail to see their variety; but the “functions of words are as diverse as the functions of these objects”. We are misled by the uniform appearance of our words into theorizing upon meaning: “Especially when we are doing philosophy!” Anat and Anat, “Ludwig Wittgenstein”, The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
Early April: Artist talk + screening of Derek Jarman’s film ‘Wittgenstein’ (1993) (exact date to be announced soon)
Mid April: Philosophy workshop for children (private event)
