Conceived as an exhibition, mutus… can at the same time be understood as a group of works. Its material are emails, most of them exhibition announcements from art institutions distributed globally from an internet platform to their newsletter subscribers. Marleine Chedraoui redacted them by making selected text passages, words and/or letters disappear. All marks like punctuation or other marks remain entirely as they appeared in the emails. The emails (hereafter referred to as “letters”) are then given new forms and are exhibited in different ways. The title of each individual work comprises a specific title as well as the title of the exhibition/group of works. A signet developed especially for the exhibition identifies the works. The works can be shown individually or presented as a solo exhibition. A selection of the nineteen works are introduced below.
