Vanessa Billy’s second solo show ‘Who Shapes What’ at Limoncello Gallery initially begins an investigation into semiotics and perception through its unconventional press release. Drawing upon Francis Ponge’s enquiry of ‘Sliding With Things’ (1942) and his approach towards symbolism, we are simply asked how to define a pebble if in doing so one has to make reference to the ineffable concept of a stone. Indeed the exhibition unfolds as an exploration of our perceptions, through a presentation of substantial materials and implications, which waver on the verge of the ephemeral.
