About this Edition

The Fine Art Print “DEIM $? IV – Türkis” was realized as an edition of 50 sheets in cooperation with 1XRun, one of the worlds leading providers for Art Prints and Fine Art Editions based in Detroit, USA. The edition was realized as a print reproduction of a series of four works that were created with spray paint on canvas and aluminium honeycomb panels. The first canvas was designed in 2003 in Portland, Oregon; the second work was realized for the exhibition “smell of paint in the air” at Kampnagel – Internationale Kulturfabrik in Hamburg. The third work of the series has been shown at Hélène Bailly Gallery in Paris and is now in the possession of a New York based art collector.

The fourth work of this series and the original to the motif “DEIM $? IV – Türkis” was realized in 2016 in the scope of the single exhibition “Mirko Reisser (DAIM) – The World is nonlinear” at zone contemporaine in Bern, Switzerland. For the first time in the history of the zone contemporaine DAIM realized a monumental artwork directly onto the walls of the exhibition space in 2014. For this more recent show he created a studio situation directly on site again to work in and with the space. The writer name of the artist is the formative motif of his newer works as well, though the letters can now not be equated with the work as easily as before. The play with the construction and the deconstruction of the letters, their abstraction and their figuration, the forms and the colours now seem to be even more on point, to actually read the letter formation is made even more complicated. But the beholder, who engages himself with the works will not only be able to literally read them but also discover more spheres in the artworks, like the game with the dimensions, which also refers to the title of the exhibition, since nonlinearity in mathematics describes two- and more- dimensionality.
