Cobra Museum
27.5.2017 – 24.09.2017
This installation was on display from May until September 2017 in the exhibition ‘Radicale Sociale Animale Talen’ in the Cobra Museum in Amstelveen.
Radicale Sociale Animale Talen is a large-scale exhibition at the Cobra Museum in Amstelveen, which loosely explores a number of themes that were relevant to the CoBrA movement. These themes continue to inspire today’s artists, since they have always maintained their artistic and social urgency.
This exhibition shows 'The Asemic Cabinet', dedicated to asemic writing, a wordless open semantic form of writing. With the non-specificity of asemic writing there comes a vacuum of meaning which is left for the reader to fill in and interpret. 'The Asemic Cabinet' contains 35 works from the continuum between text and image.
