Amanuensis

Angela Silver

Festivals: M:ST 4 Festival October 3 - 17, 2008.

In 2007, Barbara Layne wrote on Angela Silver’s work: “Exploring the relationship between conventional language structures and corporeal experience, Silver questions the way in which texts function in society. Her work raises question about public and private spaces, and offers alternatives to the everyday processes of communication, translation and human exchange.” In Amanuensis, Silver uses typewriter keys attached to boxing/training gloves to force an imprint upon the gallery wall. Through this act, fragments of text from obsolete writing technology become contemporary tools for reviving marks of text that comprise language.
