‘A message in the collar’ brings together a selection of artists whose practices engage with notions of disclosure from a critical, literary, historical and personal perspective.
The artists employ strategies of confession, refrain, encryption and material syntax to shift the way we engage with language, images and signifiers. The artists wrangle with our contemporary means of communication, one that appears at once transparent and highly
circulated as well as obfuscated and opaque.
These works are further informed by an inclination to circumvent current forms of artistic consumption and dissemination, gradually revealing meaning through prolonged engagement.
