The language in the speeches of Camus are filled with pathos and the rhetorics of conflict, completely void of the irony characterising the language in play today. The reality of 1957, with the fear-mongering of the cold war and enormous streams of refugees, are on the contrary not so far from our reality. Linge observes and asks: How is it that simple, concrete words relating to the responsibility of artists can become very hard to engage within an exhibition space in 2016.
Silje Linge works with movement, rhythm and rituals, often in the form of sculptural experiments, video and performances. Her methods are based on a study of different states and situations that occurs when working with choreographed sequences, and how to express them as meaningful statements. Linge’s work is characterised by a grip on the poetic leftovers generated in the isolation of movement and rhythm.
