From the ‘T-Shirts’ series

24.05 – 15.08.2024

Vikenti Nilin

Nilin has been taking photographs for forty years. He has been making T-shirts with slogans for quite a while as well — for over two decades now. In his first solo show following an 18-year hiatus he showcases both of these practices, exploring the non-obvious relationship between image and text. That is, he is doing exactly as the masters of conceptualism instructed. Check out any of their programme texts, and you will immediately come across something along the lines of, ‘The statement is designed to continually elude all attempts at interpretation’. All we can do is describe the exhibition in detail – but this is also pointless since at some point one finds oneself describing the description.
