Abstract (English)

"Taking its title from the lead character in Bertolt Brecht’s 1932 play Saint Joan of the Stockyards, Joan Dark evokes theatrical structures to navigate the slippage between objects and language. With an emphasis on the role of writing within the exhibition space, Joan Dark presents the works of six artists that plot the dialectic of the utilitarian and the lyrical. Joan Dark can be seen as both a title and a character; a reified individual whose agency and identity is both fixed and malleable." -- Publisher's website.
