The word 'status', by definition, refers to a given now which does not necessarily guarantee its relevance for the moments to follow. Therefore, it expresses a position that is subject to constant examination and change.
Social media has appropriated the word status and incorporated it into today’s jargon as a space for sharing one’s feelings, thoughts and actions with friends and followers — ‘What is on your mind?’. This endless verbose time-line is an attempt to not let any moment be forgotten or left behind.
Status brings together works by three artists in which text – the written word – performs as solid matter and confronts its own unstable and fragile content.
