FRAME relaunches an image that belongs to Contact Mood Share by Hanne Lippard, a three-part programme focusing on language, especially the vocabulary and semiology that comes with particular social changes and developments.
“(…)Language has its own contagious nature, somewhat closer to a physical substance that moves between human touch and its surrounding surfaces, albeit through logic and larynx rather than fingerprints. (…)The words ‘contact’, ‘mood’ and ‘share’ represent imagined seasons, replacing the existing four and their weatherly changes, seeing the original seasons themselves have lost much of their relevance through both industrialisation and climate change, especially within an urban setting. The past year has made it even harder to relate to an idea of time and the use of a calendar, to make plans, expectations, events.” (Hanne Lippard, January 2021 via)
Contact Mood Share is the first commission of Super Host, a programme jointly curated by Anne-Claire Schmitz and Joanna Zielińska, that invest in a yearlong relationship between an artist or a collective practice, the museum and its participating communities, and supporting the production of artworks, performative or discursive creations.
