Christina Ramberg DrawingsBook - 2000
Traduttore, Traditore, brings together a group of artists from around the world who employ processes of translation to expose, question, and challenge global circuits of economic and cultural capital. Emerging from the reality that uninhibited travel, communication, and trade are available to a privileged few, the exhibition uses translation as a means of exploring the transformation¿of language, customs, currency, and even memory¿that occurs when people cross borders. Taken from the Italian aphorism that roughly translates to ¿translator, traitor,¿ the title of the exhibition speaks to the misunderstandings, losses, and fragmentation that manifest during this process of exchange.
