Mira Schendel at Tate Modern


It being friday which means late night opening at Tate Modern, I went to see Mira Schendel’s exhibition. Not knowing Mira Schendel before the exhibition, I was attracted by the visuals that were previewed on the ads. While walking through the exhibition, I particularly enjoyed the transitions between drawing and typography/lettering (of course!) and the installations towards the end, as you are able to walk around the pieces which get even more physically present because of that. The concept and content in Mira Schendel’s work are very often related to philosophy and the meaning and aim of life, which helped me capture a few philosophers to research further.

An extract from the few pages of sketches I did while walking through the exhibition:
