The exhibition examines the significance of handwriting and writing as well as «scriptive» signs in artistic practice. Departing from Paul Klee’s interest in handwriting and calligraphy, it will examine the nature of writing more closely. Writing adheres to specific rules in order to be decipherable, but is simultaneously also the expression of an individual sensibility. As handwriting unites both concept and gesture, it will serve here as a model for the artistic process. The artists selected for the exhibition not only employ writing as pictorial element, but also locate their artistic practice between the two poles of spontaneity and the conceptual. In statements about their work they have repeatedly emphasized the importance of process and movement. The spectrum spanning the gestural through to the conceptual, ranges from the gestural «scription» of Henri Michaux, Mark Tobey, and Cy Twombly, to Paul Klee, Brice Marden, and Olav Christopher Jenssen, to the conceptual painting of Jonathan Lasker and word paintings by Christopher Wool.
