Entitled New Writing, the exhibition oscillates between text as language, as abstraction, as calligraphy, as image, as text. Two-dimensional subtexts reverberate within the gallery space, turning text to image to mirror, offering up a new language for the eye to decode.
Travis Jeppesen is an artist working in the medium of language. His books include novels such as Victims, Wolf at the Door and The Suiciders, poetry amongst them Dicklung & Others, Poems I Wrote While Watching TV, and art criticism such as Disorientations: Art on the Margins of the “Contemporary”. He is known as the creator of object-oriented writing, a metaphysical form of art writing that attempts to channel the inner lives of objects.
