The Spirit of the Staircase presents new work by artists Beth Collar, Danilo Correale, Andrew Gillespie, James Parkinson, Sue Tompkins and Marie Toseland. The work circles various processes of translation from a range of linguistic, material and bodily positions.
When translated, information, whether within a digital file, an ancient artefact or a nuanced linguistic phrase, is lost and new material and meanings are formed. I am interested in the time – whether seconds or centuries – that something is in translation. As cultural artefacts travel they are put through a state of transposition, accumulating different readings through time
