Mira Schendel: Monotypes

Each of Mira Schendel’s one hundred and eighty rice paper monotypes in this publication is delicately reproduced in reduced facsimile on a light, thin paper. This attention to material pays tribute to the artist’s exploration of the permeable boundary between front and back in her work, while also echoing the artist’s play with medium and technique. Featuring a text from curator Taisa Palhares, the book highlights the Brazilian artist’s prolific and considered artistic practice from 1964 and 1965, which was the focus of the show at Hauser & Wirth in London from January to March 2015.
