Writing is Drawing
The exhibition Ecrire, c'est dessiner (Writing is Drawing), which runs until 21 February 2022 at the Centre Pompidou-Metz, was born of a conversation with the artist and poet Etel Adnan (1925) and explores writing and its signs and their proximity to the practice of drawing.
Contrasting the handwritten world with the digital world, the exhibition highlights the poetry of writing through letters and manuscripts by artists and other illustrious personalities (Arthur Rimbaud, Victor Hugo, etc.) and drawings by Etel Adnan, Pierre Alechinsky, Louise Bourgeois, etc.
Etel Adnan wants us to look at writing "like a painting in a museum".
