Tate Modern- Mira Schendel

I recently visited the Tate Modern to see the exhibition on Mira Schendel's work. It was amazing to see how much variation she showed in her work from paintings to prints to installations, one of the main themes I noticed explicitly was the interesting use of shape and form. She was very in to simplicity of shape yet made it complex with material and visual display. There was much use of letters in her work, a specific favourite was the jumbled letters on paper hanging from the wall as a collection, complimenting each other in their placement. 

Also looking at her smaller work, she created some inspiring booklets showing type in different forms. She created shapes of letters and made words through pages. The way she put things together and experimented was very clever and relevant to typography of today.
