Calligraphy as Process from East Asia, the Middle East,  North Africa, Europe and the Americas

02 February – 31 March 2018

The exhibition brings together calligraphic works from different horizons, from East Asia to South America, by way of Belgium with artists Christian Dotremont and Serge Vandercam. Beyond cultural differences, one notices mental and visual affinities, no doubt the result of a shared modernity. The artists incorporate multiple signs, imagine pictorial languages without meaning and borrow aspects of semi- or non-legible writing. A new, expanded idea of calligraphy takes shape.
