Writing my Name Until it Matters
Opening Saturday 10th November, 19-22Hr
Exhibition 14th November - 8th December 2012
Skalitzers Contemporary Art presents the first solo exhibition Writing My Name Until It Matters
in Berlin by Swedish, Hungarian Polish artist DWANE.
Through exploration and experimentation the artist's nom de plume is written hundreds, even thousands of times, deformed, built up and torn apart until it is barely recognisable, opening the door to new contextual possibilities.
This process eradicates the very essence of tagging, leaving no name to read and no typographic code to decipher. A process of "anti graffiti" painting utilising the most essential means of creating your graffiti identity and visual statement while destroying it at the same time.
As a member of the notorious Vandals in Motion, DWANE has been laying the foundation for his latest series of works since he started writing in the mid 1980s in his home city of Gothenburg, Sweden. Almost 30 years later, in his first Berlin show, DWANE presents one immersive work: an abstract microcosm of the writer's reality.
Join us at Skalitzers' new Friedrichshain location for the fifth show in the Fine Lines
series, exploring the role of tagging within contemporary art.
