letter, for Anni — pdf

“I have spent some time observing a sentence by Anni Albers which looks like a trompe l’oeil. It is on page 62 of her On Weaving, in a beautiful edition by Studio London, and it is about the language of touch. We touch things —she says— to accept ourselves within a reality. We touch the objects we love. We touch the things we create. I often wonder if it is not the other way round, if the objects, shapes and words are the ones that touch us — as in a sort of unfinished dialogue. This is how I always read your work, as incomplete thoughts, those that inhabit the letters we write.”
