SEEING, SAYINGTroef Leiden TROEF wants to draw attention to the relationships and boundaries between (wo)men and language. 

‘Seeing, Saying’ is an exhibition that encourages introspection and dialogue surrounding the intricacies of perception, communication, and the fluidity of language. Language,  a dance of sound and symbols, has always interacted with art. It is a means of communication and a medium of raw emotion.
    We’re shouting sonnets without saying a word. The pulse of human connection evokes the sensation of spoken syllables.
    Or as we say in Dutch: “WAT ZEGGIE?”

Seeing, Saying was on show from 01.09.2023 to 30.09.2023. Many gratitudes to the artists for being part of this exhibition.
