The work of Mirtha Dermisache
I encountered the work of Mirtha Dermisache at a group show held at Gallarie Satellite in Paris in April 2005. Her Newsletters were stacked in one corner, multiple copies of ten compositions. People attending the opening were invited to take as many copies as they wanted. I took several, including the one reproducede below. The more I looked at these pages, on a table, pinned to a wall, in my hands, the more I could see the work oscillate between visual and verbal form.
NEW presents five recent Newsletters, chosen by the artist to fit this magazine's page format. Essays by the Argentine film-maker and writer Edgardo Cozarinsky (written and first published 35 years ago), American critic Carrie Noland, and the publisher Florent Fajole, provide some context and possible views of Dermisache’s art.
