Bitmap Poemarium by Gonzalo Reyes Araos
Book Launch and Artist Talk
April 13, 2023, 6pm
Launch activity of the publication “BITMAP POEMARIUM”, an artist book that brings together a collection of 33 conceptual poems. In a nod to the Surrealist’s “automatic writing,” practices of the early 20th century, the artist has created a form of poetry by limiting his composition to the predictive text prompts suggested by his phone. Drawing on ideas cited by the Canadian philosopher Marshall McLuhan, the artist believes that over time, the use of his mobile phone has made it an extension of his own neural system and that therefore, part of his own subconscious resides in the memory of the electronic device. The poems were transformed into a “bitmap” code, to make the computer interpret each word as a colour code. These images go along with the poems, while the viewer is able to read the inside and outside of a digital image.
Gracelee Lawrence’s exhibition has been reviewed in Les Nouveaux Riches Magazine!
“In “Collected Trot”, Gracelee Lawrence presents a solo exhibition of her sculptural works for the first time in Europe at Galerie Peter Gaugy in Vienna. Moving through scans of her own body which are alternatingly cropped, shrunken or elongated, she engages a dance-like rhythm with repetitions of fruits, vegetables and gently hinted-at floral arrangements.”(Read more: Les Nouveaux Riches)
