text

The fundamental characteristics of my writing are graphical marks on a surface; its purpose is to communicate something; this purpose is achieved by virtue of the mark’s conventional relation to language.

The writing systems represent linguistic units, words, syllables and phonemes, at different structural levels. Each written text has its own set of icons, which are known as characters or letters that have certain basic shapes.

In these works, ‘energies of writing’ emerge through developing sound and writing – both as materials and activities – in relation to each other. The textual is transformed, quarried and disfigured. The written texts become visual images and are non-illustrative. In this way, writing generates an energy, which not only signifies but also is itself the subject of signification.

Caroline de Lannoy investigates the dynamics of time in her artistic practice. Her texts are dealing with the concepts of time and space.  She centralizes time as the main theme of her work, making art and life simultaneous, showing they are integrated activities. Her work translates theorizing about time into real-istic praxis.
