People who have saved this event:



This exhibition focuses on a selection of works from the series Radical Writings produced in the 1980s and 1990s.

In these works the artist links her breathing to the gesture of writing, repeating a single action: drawing a line corresponding to one single breath. The striking blue paintings on canvas open up a discussion on language and signs, and on the authority of the written word that is constantly challenged as a vehicle of power.

Irma Blank’s Breath Paintings is presented, along with Amalia Pica’s Switchboard, as the second in the ‘Conversation Series’ atMOSTYN.
