Artists Statement:

“Untranslatable Words” is an interactive action in public spaces with flexible length between 30 min. to 3 h. according to the context and character of the event and the location.
I interact with people in different locations, in the street /public space, ask them to contribute untranslatable words in their mother tongue language and evoke discussion about the word’s cultural background.

I do not consider language gaps as an obstacle for fluent communication, but rather a catalyst for cultural exchange between people. I wish to re-activate the social role of public spaces. I wish create an exchange between different quarters within the city and eventually to bridge cultural gaps between different regions of one land and between countries. I hope to produce international actions and initiate a website with forum, online and printed edition of “Untranslatable Words” Lexicon.
