The Mene Mene Tekel Parsin group exhibition at Cambridge’s Wysing Arts Centre opens May 20 and is running to July 19.
Curated by Jesse Darling, the show includes work by Sarah Boulton, Stanley Brouwn, Gordon Hall, Evan Ifekoya, Sulaïman Majali, Imran Perretta, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, Özgür Kar, Claire Potter, Rosa Johan Uddoh, Hannah Weiner, Constantina Zavitsanos and Jesse Darling.
The works brought together explore language and words to unpick “the legacies of imperial scientific fundamentalism” and the violence of naming/claiming bodies. Through its power, symbolism and obscurity, the exhibition looks at the way the “Word is itself a stand-in for divinity; the unsayable equates to the sublime.”
The opening night will include live performances by vocalist Elaine Mitchener and artists Claire Potter and Gordon Hall.
