MOSTYN | WALES is delighted to announce solo exhibitions by Irma Blank and Amalia Pica which are both part of the Conversation Series, a sequence of exhibitions that bring two solo shows in conversation. This, the second in the series, also marks the first solo presentations in Wales for both artists.

Irma Blank was born in 1934 in Celle, Germany. Conducting research on the intersections of linguistic and visual representation since the late 1960s, in her work Blank attempts to record time and create a form of writing not related to knowledge or meaning but to being. In Radical Writings the artist links her breathing to the gesture of writing, repeating a single action: drawing a line corresponding to one single breath.
Breath Paintings, along with others in Blank’s series, opens up a discussion on language, signs and the authority of the written word , constantly challenged as a vehicle of power. Blank’s works do not narrate, describe or inform. They are transcriptions that are impossible to decipher and thus convey the unspeakable. They rewrite the institutions of knowledge and meaning. Irma Blank’s exhibition, Breath Paintings is curated by Alfredo Cramerotti (Director, MOSTYN).
Breath Paintings has been kindly supported by Gallery P420, Bologna and the Colwinston Trust.

Amalia Pica was born in 1978 in Neuquen Captial in Argentina. Her upbringing under post-Peron dictatorship, a troubled period in Argentinian history, is a guiding influence over her practice and referenced in her work. In addition, myths, rituals, rites and traditions, as well as communal histories, are co-opted by her pieces, which span a variety of media including sculpture, installation, photography, drawing and performance. Another related subject in Pica’s work is communication. Her work often looks at, and uses, the act of listening, pointing to its ability to be effective and clear, but also nuanced and fallible. All of the themes that Pica’s work deals with, and which have their basis in social interaction, are paralleled by the way in which her work is presented to, and engages with, the viewer. Actions of touch and listening are made equal and sometimes as important as the viewers’ gaze, and this will be highlighted in the exhibition at MOSTYN.
