Printmaking

July 1, 2013

I only own one actual objet d’art. It was a print given out by Moreen Vogel, a visiting German printmaker in gallery Duplex 10m2 in Sarajevo, June 2011. Free art! (Each print is not a ‘copy’ or reproduction, but rather an original, as each print varies slightly.) That was my only visit to Duplex in its old location; now it’s 100m2.

The print is an experimental text which records a particular moment in her process of learning the Bosnian language. She wrote the text without any help and left all the spelling and grammar mistakes as a part of her artistic process.

She writes about heroism, poison, dragons, café culture, homeland, peace… It’s a fairy-tale reinterpretation of her culture shock and observations during her stay in Sarajevo in 2011.

I love the delicate, fanciful dragon etching, and the texture of the print-pressed page.
