Product Description

‘Character’ is an artist book composed from a danced alphabet documented in a series of frontal photographic reproductions.

Graphic designer Joris Kritis (Belgium, 1983, graphic designer based in Brussels) constructs a type specimen in rigorously playful page compositions echoing iconic logos, calligrams, graphic designs and concrete poetry.

The shapes danced by choreographer Femke Gyselinck (Belgium, 1983, dancer and choreographer based in Brussels) jump, turn and twist, but her body purposely doesn’t bend to illustrate the letters from A to Z. It is through Kritis’ visual configurations of the photographs that reading the danced alphabet begins.

The photography in ‘‘Character’ is by Robbrecht Desmet (Belgium, 1985, filmmaker, photographer and researcher based in Brussels)
