A LEAK IN THE SILENCE: NOISE-

The line of poetry “A leak in the silence: noise -” by the Dutch poet Hans Faverey (1933-1990) provides the conceptual framework for the Poetry Summer 2007. The exhibition uses this phrase as a metaphor for that which in our existential and social context cannot be spoken, yet becomes audible as silence, noise, an inner rustle...

In some of the installations, voice and sound will keep pace with the word and linguistic meaning; in others they will sever themselves from the meaning as they choose to follow a self-willed path. Edition 2007 of the Poetry Summer attempts to find out how the contemporary visual arts and above all poetry interact verbally and through images with the auditive dimension to result in novel articulations.
