Product Description

U is a letter-edition book on Siggi Hofer's reading performance. A set of 108 letters on 108 pages. An artist's book to read, cut out pages and hang up - until only limp scraps will remain.

Siggi Hofer lives and works in Vienna. Appointed with the Schindler grant (2001, LA) and prizes such as the STRABAG Award, the Otto Mauer Prize in 2009, the Paul Flora Prize in 2010 and, most recently, the Prize for Artistic Creation of the City of Innsbruck, Siggi Hofer is certainly one of the most promising and interesting Austrian artists of his Generation. The use of language, and the reflective subtle use of it, has been an essential part of his oeuvre for many years. Letters can be found in many of his works in a multilayered manner, be it as words, in sentences, as emotional statements or block-like figures in space.
