Lund, Sweden: Gelleriet, 1980. Single sheet folded once to make a small booklet, with two transparent leaves of tissue glassine laid in, which are printed in blue and are designed to overlay a geometric drawing within.
The strikingly designed announcement for this 1980 exhibition by Denes at Galleriet in Lund. One page of the booklet prints a manifesto by Denes, in which she states "We Must create a new language, consider a transitory state of new illusions and layers of validity..." Facing this statement is a globe projection, and on the the glassine overlays are printed, in blue, a corresponding but different projection and a drawing of the continents in blue, respectively. A striking illustration of the artist's cartographic projections, here involving the participation of invitee. Brilliant.
Both glassine sheets lightly creased, with some soiling, else very good. Item #25204
