The title of the exhibition is a play on the word image, folding it into different linguistic aspects yet allowing for the stability of decipherment. This wordplay opens the curtain into the shifting world of language and its limits while acknowledging the ability to maintain meaning through transformation. One could look at this through the rhetoric of the pop image, denoting a distillation or simplification into something symbolically new.
