Are the limits of ...

Are the limits of my language, the limits of my world?

The above mentioned title of this exhibition is inspired by a quote of Ludwig Wittgenstein (1880-1951), The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.
Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (1921) is recognized as being one of the most influential philosophical works of the 20th century and contains several declarative statements in order to identify the relationship between language, ethics and reality.
This -for Wittgenstein self-evident- declaration asks nevertheless (and particularly in these days) for interpretation and questioning especially in a world where mental and physical boundaries become less defining.
Art is an interesting modus to cross-examine this statement.

The common project between Mumbai based Maskara Gallery and Antwerp based Geukens & De Vil Gallery is a challenge to explore these above mentioned limits of language, of mind and thus following Wittgenstein of each others world.
