P/////AKT Riet Wijnen, Sixteen Conversations on Abstraction: Tool One (Template Ruler 1-5)
Sixteen Conversations on Abstraction: Tool One (Template Ruler 1-5) is an edition developed by Riet Wijnen and consists of a set of five template rulers designed by five artists and graphic designers: Dafne Boggeri, Linda van Deursen, Mandy El-Sayegh, Ima-Abasi Okon and Haegue Yang, which are collected in a handmade etui.

Wijnen uses the template ruler in her practice as a tool to create type designs that balance between being abstract forms and readable letters, these designs she applies in her woodcuts and other sculptural works. She is interested in the template ruler as a tool that slows down the act of writing: words fall apart into letters, and letters become forms rather than meaning. Here the act of writing becomes a reflection on language itself, language being an abstract construct that we often inhabit as if it is a part of us rather than seeing it as a tool that we use.

The edition is produced on the occasion of Wijnen’s solo exhibition Sixteen Conversations on Abstraction (table / table) at Kunstverein Milano, and in collaboration with P/////AKT, Amsterdam, San Serriffe, Amsterdam and Kunstverein Toronto.

P/////AKT is a non-profit exhibition space for contemporary art that organizes and facilitates large scale solo presentations through which the audience gets the opportunity to gain insight in the thinking space of the artists.

P/////AKT provides a platform for exceptional, emerging artistic talents, who distinguish themselves through their unique and authentic language and who are capable of giving a different view on the current way of thinking. They are stimulated to work out new developments and are given the opportunity to present their work to a relevant audience. Furthermore, P/////AKT always asks the artists to produce new work that relates to the specific nature and dimensions of the given space and to present their own mental space as an overall presentation within the given context.
