until 14.05. | #1143ARTatBerlin | KW Institute for Contemporary Art shows from 18th March 2017 the exhibition “As you said” by the artist Paul Elliman.
KW Institute for Contemporary Art presents the first German institutional solo show by British artist Paul Elliman (* 1961 in London).
Paul Elliman has consistently engaged with the production and performance of language as a material component of the socially constructed environment. In a world where objects and people are equally subject to the force fields of mass production, Elliman explores the range of human expression as kind of typography. His exhibition As you said includes various works, both existing and new, that test the boundaries of our communication through letter-like objects, language-like vocal sounds, actions, and movements of the body. As you said is structured around a set of vitrines devised by Ian Wilson, which Elliman considers as sculptures, objects of display, and sites for discourse. Alongside these vitrines Elliman presents two new bodies of work, one has been produced in collaboration with the dancer Elena Giannotti.
