In the current political situation, marked by armed conflicts, economic crises, the rise of authoritarian regimes and nationalism, ecological unsustainability and the oppression of women, “transfert” means circulation – of people, words, and objects. It points at the distortion of messages, the impossibility to grasp one’s identity and convey it to others. We also draw attention to displacement that occurs within artworks: broken structures of communication, exchanged codes. Transfert, a painting by Jadwiga Maziarska from 1980, features here as the visual motto of the show, and can be perceived as the representation of a message: biological, linguistic, and artistic.
