Trans-lating refers to bringing across, transporting, transferring. It is a process that aims to make ideas and information understandable from one language to another, to make them accessible from one culture to the next.
It also refers to change, transformation, mutation, migration. Crossing borders and cultures.
Artists translate when they give forms to their ideas, thoughts, feelings, when they move to one expressive medium to another.
Translations are about communication. They expand our understanding and facilitate dialogue.
Translations are a pressing issue in contemporary society, where we are all connected by the new media, but don't easily communicate with those who are different from our own.
What do we lose in translation, and what do we find?
