The Center for Epigraphical and Palaeographical Studies is hosting an exhibit, 'Void Writing,' by MFA student 조은영 (Eun Young Cho), April 10-28, 2017.
Opening reception (with light refreshments): Monday April 17, 4:00-5:30 pm
‘Void writing’ requires a series of re-configurations to bring to its obliteration.
Based on a mathematical formula, the alphabet forms are manipulated, stretched or stuffed to be given a form for a new writing system. The exact count of a definition is calculated to fit the square border. The mathematical discipline applied to the form and the components dictate the dimension of the boundary. Each letter is then placed under the surface and rubbed with escalating pressure. As the forms occupy the space, the split stillness occurs. Through this process, I force the definition out of its original context to look for silence within its utterance.
