Altea Grau investigates the dialogue that exists between the connotations and ideas associated to the page, challenging and unmasking the conventional communicative processes through ideas intimately linked to that page concept such as duality, echo, reflection and the notion of sheet. From this idea she creates a space where the materiality of the image, text, ink and paper coexist.
Against Syntax is a multidisciplinary project that appeals to the double meaning of the word “against” which in Spanish means “en contra” but also “en contacto” and to the syntax as the way in which the elements that compose the message are combined. Through drawing, engraving and installation, the artist proposes to explore the meanings that arise from our interaction with written language, the most intimate spaces of the communication process.
