Art Meets Language

I went to the private view of Art Meets Language at the beautiful Austrian Cultural Forum in Knightsbridge

The highlight of the show for me was Jochen Höller’s works.

“By rearranging these texts sentence by sentence and word by word, at times even extracting only the punctuation marks, he creates collages generating a new context for the texts and conveying new meanings.”

Chatted to the Forum’s Director, Elisabeth Kögler about the works and about how the Austrian government backs them financially. Difficult to imagine the British government putting money behind such an intimately curated show.
