In Translation is about the way that we create new languages, in order to interpret and convey our responses to the world. Art can be a way of making sense of our environment and of lived experience. It is as if the raw material of life needs to be translated - given a kind or order, or meaning, in order to make it liveable. This is Culture, and this is why art is at the root of culture. It offers us a way of looking, understanding and being in the world.

Beyond this, translation is a way of reaching out. Translations bring people together. They put us on the same page. Meaning is made meaningful when it is acknowledged by others. Through translations in art, our visions become powerful. They can bring about change.

In Translation brings together a group of artists from around the world. Whether they are inspired by their environments, by myths and legends, or by ideas and emotions, each artist’s work is underpinned by the need to translate experience into something visual and share-able. We are offered new perspectives, or understandings, and we are invited to translate their translations for ourselves.
