Irma BlankEigenschriften – 1968–1973
Pier Vittorio Aureli’s selection for his storefront.
This book is hypnotic for its sheer simplicity and beauty. Irma Blank’s work consists in reducing writing to its most essential datum of sign. In doing so she frees writing from its abstracting logic and reclaims it as a litany or spiritual exercise.
“A series of drawings considered to be the starting point of the artist’s “mature work”, in which linguistic and visual representations intertwine, created following Irma Blank’s exile in Italy in the 1960s.
Born in 1934 in Celle (Germany), Irma Blank lives and works in Milan.”
