Susan Hiller & Shirin Neshat
The implicit relationship between language and culture is given a tangible form by “the voice”. “The voice” is much more than a simple carrier of the message: in its materiality, “the voice” gives the message a political currency. It is through” the voice” that the message is entangled with history, value and exchange simultaneously, and it is where meaning resides. Can You Hear Me brings together work by Susan Hiller and Shirin Neshat in an exhibition concerned with language, culture and power.
