______________________________________

Language is one of the features of the mankind. There are 9000 different languages in the world. But there are also other kind of languages. Sign language, language of music, language of emotions, language of pictures. Animals have their own languages too – signs for communication that another member of the same species will understand.

Thus, language is something that unites us, but also separates us. Individuals that command the same language can easily communicate with each other, while those not knowing the language are left outside. Often the language of visual arts feels so strange, that an interpreter would be in order!

In this art exhibition we study how to find the similarities and differences in the languages that are part of our life and how we could make them understandable to those that do not know these languages. The art works of the exhibition deal with the ties of language and culture from different perspectives and also the concept of language bends to means very different ways of communication.

The artists of the exhibition are members of Helsinki International Artists’ Association ry. HIAA promotes the work of visual artists coming from different countries and working in Finland, brings artists together and informs them and arranges group exhibitions. The purpose of the association in also to facilitate collaboration between local and global visual artists. HIAA ry. was founded in 2007.
