“Signs give you information about something - a warning, an instruction.
And sometimes they do not.”
The French visual artist Yannick Martin arrives in Sofia, Bulgaria by invitation of Visionary Foundation to create a series of art works for a solo show at INTRO Gallery this June, part of Visionary art program for 2022.
The exhibition presents the visual work of Yannick Martin, made up of signs, symbols and structures that take the form of enigmatic and playful alphabets.
With this installation, SIGNS OFFF announces itself as a visual enigma (referring to signs of & signs off). It invites us to decipher the mysterious inscriptions left everywhere and at all times, soliciting our understanding of these languages composed of lines or marks, comparable to hieroglyphs or some kind of signs. More broadly, it proposes to take a step back, to question our certainties again and to take time.
