Alida Sayer 'There is no why'

Alida Sayer
‘There is no why’

at Mardsen Woo Gallery (London) through July 31st

Sayer’s emphatic and enigmatic title is inspired by Kurt Vonnegut’s book Slaughterhouse 5 and with him she shares a pre-occupation with how time is ‘arranged’ in our minds. Her experimental typography presented as wall–pieces and projections allows the viewer to experience her three dimensional approach to distilling the essence of a four-dimensional universe. Employing traditional graphic techniques, including letterpress, without reverence and using a monochrome palette, she emphasises the starkness of her message.
