The Waste Land exhibition offers a few examples of text in works of art. The name of the show is taken from the poem by T. S. Eliot. With its powerful dramatic potential, Eliot’s text represents the search for lost wholeness, which, paradoxically, is mirrored in fragments that resonate one after another. The five artists in the exhibition work with performance art, video, photography, minimalism, magic and post-conceptual thought. The fact that the textual component is not self-evident only enhances the power of the statement. While the text opens cracks in reality and inverts the senses, it is not subversive – though clear expression in words always has subversive potential.
