To translate something is to pull it apart, look at the nuts and bolts of it and then rebuild it, carefully interpreting the subtlety of the original into the secondary. Whether derived from a film, novel, song, comic, magazine of philosophical writing, the artists in ‘Translator’, have all taken a text that is not their own as the starting point for their work. Their subsequent ‘translations’ are about breaking down and sifting through a text to understand it better – about magnifying one small aspect of the text to cause it to be read in a completely different way. Words that are familiar are emphasised, reduced or mixed together to the point where their original meaning is changed, confused and even removed altogether.
