Carta a Mirtha | Sebastián Barrante


Carta a Mirtha is a graphic work that comes from the project “Cartas a Mirtha” by Sebastián Barrante. This poster contains one of the graphism created during the project, printed in silkscreen in 30 numbered and signed copies.

Cartas a Mirtha is a project by Sebastián Barrante in which he explores different dimensions of asemic writing. In this way, he creates different families of graphism based on their visual characteristics, which are then inserted into a conventional format, such as the letter, reflecting the concepts of writing, reading, and publication.

The project is a quote from the Argentinian artist Mirtha Dermisache’s works, who used several conventional formats to insert her illegible writings, creating a union between the graphic nature of writing and the graphic nature of conventional formats in publishing.
