Spe­cial thanks to Nai­ry Bagh­ra­mian and to the Pi­nault Col­lec­tion.

Danh Vo’s works are im­pre­gna­ted with the no­tions of iden­ti­ty, be­lon­ging, fra­gi­li­ty, mu­ta­bi­li­ty and in­ter­cul­tu­ral contacts. He has been in­vi­ted by the Pi­nault Col­lec­tion as an ar­tist but al­so as a cu­ra­tor / a “ca­re­ta­ker” – in col­la­bo­ra­tion with Ca­ro­line Bour­geois – to work with the col­lec­tion which is a premiere for the foun­da­tion. Ta­king over the Pun­ta della Do­ga­na the ex­hi­bi­tion “Slip of the Tongue” re­volves around the idea that the ac­ti­vi­ty of the ar­tist is ai­med at the pre­ser­va­tion and af­ter­life of ob­jects ra­ther than at their in­ter­pre­ta­tion. The title was ta­ken from a sculp­ture work by ar­tist Nai­ry Bagh­ra­mian who has been in ac­tive conver­sa­tion with Danh Vo. She and se­ve­ral in­ter­lo­cu­tors close to the ar­tists have been in­vol­ved in the project which gives the show ano­ther di­men­sion: an at­tempt at map­ping friend­ship. Pho­to­gra­pher and ar­tist Heinz Pe­ter Knes took the pulse of the ex­hi­bi­tion while it was still in the ma­king and has kind­ly made his pho­tos avai­lable to L’Of­fi­ciel Art.
