Video featuring Manfred Mohr discussing ideas+process behind his Artificiata II work currently on display at Carroll Fletcher in London.
Artificiata II gathers several animated mappings of the hypercube alongside a selection of images drawn from this process, what the artist calls ‘êtres graphiques’. The exhibition is a continuation of Mohr’s investigations into geometric abstraction as visual music, which is inherent to his practice and emphasised in Artificiata I, his first artist book. Featuring hand-drawn pieces from 1969, these were the last works the artist ever produced manually. Artificiata II is presented here alongside the original drawings from Artificiata I. Exhibited together for the very first time, these works are a testament to both Mohr’s rigorous consistency and depth of research.
