“How many words hide beneath an object?… Does a paragraph have a shadow?” Writer-Artist Meital Yaniv conceptualized the “Words on Paper” exhibition out of genuine curiosity. She wanted to know how her friends and peers navigate the bridges and pitfalls between visual and verbal practices, and she wanted to facilitate a democratic platform where individual inquiries could converge. The heartening condition of the show is that it does not exhibit work along one continuum, or showcase different aspects of the same relationship; for each maker, creating art and composing written work falls into an expansive “both/and” proposition. Love and loss; the quandaries of being citizen and friend; light and paper and voice and vision coalesce thematically to create a open-handed space to consider the ways words run through our own everyday expressive endeavors.
