SCHRIFTENMALER

Whether tag, throw up, piece or masterpiece – graffiti is more than a juxtaposition of illegible letters. This is what Thierry Furger represents in his new series Schriftenmaler. In everyday life, letters are used to convey a rationalised message, but in the graffiti tradition, they represent part of a complete work of art. The medium becomes the object of representation and the transmission of the code becomes mediation.

With the title Schriftenmaler, Furger takes up a play on words in which he consciously identifies himself as a painter and not “writer” (“Maler“ german word for “painter“). Furger’s approach is about artistic exploration, the creative act and therefore the transmission of a certain mood through a work, whereby the letters contained therein are secondary.
