“LETTERS, MOVEMENT” Lara Captan.
In my world, Arabic letters are made of motions within.
They embody traces of a long line of master calligraphers’ gestures, thoughts & artistic refinement.
They are inhabited by shifting technologies that reflect the environments in which these changes keep taking place.
In this exhibition, you will visit fragments of my life, dedicated to playing with elemental systems, to making typefaces that tell stories of, movements.
“LETTERS, MOVEMENT” Jérôme Schlomoff.
