Warbling is pleased to present ‘To all our absent dialogues’ an exhibition of 21 international artists all working within varied practices including painting, sculpture, photography, video and installation.

Whether we communicate solely through our gestures or speak to each other in differing languages, we are often absent in one dialogue yet present in another. An interpretation, assumption or preconceived idea. As there are infinite ways to experience the same moment, object, space or connection, all depends on our existing knowledge and framework, which we have built up to that point. Words interwoven to apply new purpose to something which originally embodied a different meaning altogether.

The exhibition explores how our understandings often abstract an original idea, between a painters gesture and the painting, cultural perspectives and separate contexts, the potentiality of everything to be something else entirely.
