spelling slipping ellipsis

When spelling, we delineate the shape of words, committing to an arbitrary affinity between symbols and sound. Slipping is losing one’s grip, an unintentional slide, a sudden lapse. An ellipsis describes an omission, the gap left when things are not fully said. We tell stories in fragments. Rewinding, retelling. We digress, we lie.

spelling slipping ellipsis gathers a group of artists giving form to histories and desires. Their work carries echoes from the technoclub, the mine, the queer bar, the jungle and the gym into the modernist building of Lunds konsthall. Filled with abstraction and noise, the exhibition brings together a choir of dissonant bodies and ghostly murmurs.
