In Other Words Romi Achituv and Orit Kruglanski (Israel) documents the reading of stories in sign language and adds its translation in subtitles (short texts written by Orit Kruglanski- ‘eleven short notes to my psychopathic lover and several other nights’). The work deals in the limitations of language as a tool for expression and hearing. It demonstrates the gap between the building blocks of vocal language- sound, the silences between the words- by presenting text simultaneously in two languages, in written Hebrew and signed Hebrew. Viewing the work is a deciphering process that operates on each axis of interpretation- between written and signed words. The translation between languages is minimal in terms of semantics and presents an almost perfect set of physical parallels for each written expression. And so the viewer must unravel meaning in that space amid words and the form that shapes them, the physical expression that represents them and the gap between them.
