New works by Waikanae resident, Paul Thompson, in 'Asemica, artist's books'.

"Asemic writing has a long history. Tang Dynasty calligraphers created illegible ‘texts’ over a thousand years ago and the Dadaists and Surrealists were modern practitioners. More recently the French Letterists and others working on the boundaries of writing and graphics, and some well-known artist’s bookmakers such as Timothy Ely, have created works with abstruse ‘languages’.

The edition, Asemica, consists of twelve unique works all with identical covers. They could be regarded as a sort of multi-volume anthology of asemic writing, but married to the artist’s book in which the content is often an interpretation or expansion of the bibliographic form itself."

There is also an Artist's Workshop in this exhibition with Paul Thompson:
Saturday 28 August, 12:30-3:30pm, limited to eight participants.
