“I want my translation to be something impossible yet extant, something existing on the border of two utterly incompatible worlds, and yet to be a bridge between those worlds. I want the reader of the English version to feel the same shock I felt when reading the original. I don’t want to make it easy or acceptable, or to over-domesticate the text. There is an incredible poetry in the Hungarian language. Sometimes it’s infinitely gentle, sometimes it’s savage poetry.”
An interview with translator Ottilie Mulzet on László Krasznahorkai.

Devil is proud to present Impossible Eye, an exhibition by Miranda Pfeiffer and Ginevra Shay. Please Join us for an opening reception on Saturday, June 28th from 7:00 - 10:00PM Since 2011, Miranda has worked almost exclusively with mechanical pencil on paper, developing a unique approach to hatching and illusionism, in a series of large, panoramic landscapes, Solitary Stones. In her new series Rock Line, Pfeiffer scales down to two and three-foot square drawings, rendering situations both imagined and observed. If Solitary Stones created an immersive narrative through spatial depth and composition, then Rock Line depicts what can be understood of a drawing in an instant. By including the corner of one’s eye, the tip of one’s nose or finger, Miranda’s drawings simulate the immediate vantage point of a human body.  Trained in darkroom photography, Ginevra abandoned the camera as a documentation tool and began working with materials on light sensitive paper to explore the minute interactions between materiality and process. Raum Bilder, her most recent series combines collage and diorama to establish a dynamic space in which the prescribed meaning or use of images – collected from advertisements and mass-produced publications – is dissolved. These photographs explore the tonal quality, form, and texture of each image and use them like a paint stroke, or ground to build new meaning and purpose within the diorama. Through this process, Shay is able to explore photography as a material in unique object making. A conversation between the artists began in November of 2013 that focused on the deviation from realism in their respective practices. In their new series, both Pfeiffer and Shay return to the tendencies of Paleolithic art described by Arnold Hauser in A Social History of Art:  “It was a technique without mystery, a matter-of-fact procedure, the objective application of methods, which had as little to do with mysticism and esoterism as when we set mousetraps, manure the ground, or take a drug. The pictures were part of the technical apparatus of this magic; they were the “trap” into which the game had to go, or rather they were the trap with the already captured animal—for the picture was both representation and the things represented, both wish and wish-fulfillment at one and the same time. “ Impossible Eye marks a convergence of optic and haptic senses, through textural and spatial illusionism and the material associations of imagery. Literal and direct, the artist’s processes construct these other worlds without ceremony. Ginevra Shay (b. 1987, Washington, DC) is an artist and curator who studied Studio Art and Art History at the University of Vermont. Ginevra’s work has been exhibited and published nationally and internationally. She participated in recent exhibitions at The Finnish Museum of Photography (Finland), Notre Dame University (Maryland), John Hansard Gallery (United Kingdom), Maryland Art Place (Baltimore), and Guest Spot (Baltimore). Her publications are in the libraries of The International Center for Photography, Indie Photobook Library, Houston Center for Photography, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.Miranda Pfeiffer is an artist and animator. She has shown at Commune1 in Capetown South Africa, Open Space in Baltimore, Maryland, and Vox Populi in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is a Kenan Fellow and a recipient of the Nancy Harrican Prize, given through the Baker Artist Fund. Currently, she is living in Los Angeles California.

"To speak to one another means: to say something, show something to one another, and to entrust one another mutually to what is shown. To speak with one another means: to tell of something jointly, to show to one another what that which is claimed in the speaking says in the speaking, and what it, of itself, brings to light. What is unspoken is not merely something that lacks voice, it is what remains unsaid, what is not yet shown, what has not yet reached its appearance.  That which must remain wholly unspoken is held back in concealment as unshowable, is mystery.

[…]

Speaking is known as the articulated vocalization of thought by means of the organs of speech. But speaking is at the same time also listening.  it is the custom to put speaking and listening in opposition: one man speaks, the other listens.  but listening accompanies and surrounds not only speaking such as takes place in conversation.  The simultaneousness of speaking and listening has a larger meaning. Speaking is of the itself a listening.  Speaking is listening to the language which we speak.  Thus it is a listening not while but before we are speaking.  This listening to language also comes before all other kinds of listening that we know, in a most conspicuous manner.  We do not merely speak the language—we speak by way of it.  We can do so solely because we always have already listened to the language.  What do we hear there? We hear language speaking.

[…]

In our speaking, as a listening to language, we say again the Saying we have heard.  We let its soundless voice come to us, and then demand, reach out and call for the sound that is already kept in store for us.  By now, perhaps, at least one trait in the design of language may manifest itself more clearly, allowing us to see how language as speaking comes into its own and thus speaks qua language.[…] We hear Saying only because we belong within it.”
