“Often my work is in constant tension between wild and organic writing and the order of structure, between the legible and the indecipherable, between the visible and the hidden, between the inscription and its erasure”
Said Dokins is a Mexican contemporary artist interested in the displacement of the linguistic sign and its multiple aesthetic possibilities in relation to context and history. His work shakes the language to look at what is underneath its mechanisms for the construction of meaning. Whether on large walls in public space or through installations and sculptures on various supports -which even include the transience of light, with ephemeral pieces suspended in the air, legible only by capturing time- his work creates semantic universes where words are malleable and letters defy alphabetic limitations to weave warps of meaning that link urban space with moments, people, worlds…
Khalid Al Jallafis from United Arab Emirates, and Said Dokins from Mexico, who offered live demos to show the public the origins, transitions, and evolution of calligraphy in both countries.
The visitors had also the opportunity to receive from the artists their names written in Arabic or Latin calligraphy, taking them closer to the Arab and Castellan culture and writing.
