WHEREOF ONE CAN NOT SPEAK, THEREOF ONE MUST BE SILENT. WOVON MAN NICHT SPRECHEN KANN, DARUEBER MUSS MAN SCHWEIGEN.
Experimenting on the relationship between language and the world
Wittgenstein is one of the most influential philosophers of the 20th century. In his work Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (Latin for "Logico-Philosophical Treatise"), he puts forth that if we could understand language, then how the world was constructed could be explained. Mathias Woo, in collaboration with cross-disciplinary artists, would recreate Wittgenstein's world of the logic of language; with comic master Li Chi-tak's unique images and symbols restructuring Wittgenstein's philosophical treatise; Nerve's new language of electronic synth music for theatre; and German image artist Tobias Gremmler overlapping reality and imagination with severed, twisting and collaged images...entering the world of existence and eternity in the next century.
