This stunning book accompanies the first full-scale survey of the dynamic work of Swiss-born Brazilian artist Mira Schendel (1919-1988). Alongside her contemporaries Lygia Clark and Helio Oiticica, Schendel reinvented the language of European modernism in Brazil. Her work is characterized by a variation in materials, from braided, twisted rice paper to acrylic paint-ings to black-and-white temperas and a series of paintings using brick dust. During the height of her artistic powers, her work often focused on the visual component of language--using letters, words, and phonetic combinations to highlight the gestural and "sudden semantic value" of the writ-ten word. After her death in 1988 her work was shown extensively around the world, culminating in a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 2009.
