PENNA WRITING TEST

Exhibition of found or stolen drawings and performance
Alessandra Eramo & Tomomi Adachi


Presented at:
"The Voice Observatory" - Errant Bodies Berlin, 8-14 March 2015


Between 2013 and 2014 the artists have collected a huge amount of pen test writing paper sheets in stationary shops all around the world, fascinated by the variety of drawn lines and written words, as if they would contain sound and movement. They are objets trouvés or objets volés that are recontextualized as graphic score and visual poetry. These paper sheets represent anonymous traces of unconscious/conscious writing. Their use is just for testing pens and most of the time people don't intend to express anything at all. But the diverse figures express sometimes public/private statements and in some cases they even reveal deep emotions. They are approximations of letters, like "pre-letter", furthermore they can be read as signs that refer to a linguistic and cultural background. There can be found some characteristic aspects in each country which reflect the socially constructed physicality of writing.

Tomomi Adachi and Alessandra Eramo show an installation of several hundreds of paper sheets and they create a musical and poetical vocal performance interpreting a selection of drawings.

With kind support of Bezirkamt Pankow, Initiative für Neue Musik, Exploratorium Berlin and Berliner Gesellschaft für Neue Musik e.V
