Book of Dreams: PostCards Home
Ferguson Gallery is pleased to present the art of Baltimore artist, Sanzi Kermes. In this exhibit, Book of Dreams: PostCards Home, multimedia artist Sanzi Kermes presents installation art, artist’s books, and prints, three components that comprise her vast artistic practice.
PostCards Home is an installation in which the audience is invited to mail a postcard back to the artist, which then will be incorporated into a future edition of artists books. Completed books and prints presented in this exhibition document and present artist and audience interactions from the past decade.
Kermes’ Scrabble series explores the intersection of art and play by documenting Scrabble games the artist has played visually and linguistically through the printmaking process. An avid Scrabble player, Kermes started this project after a conversation with Minimalist artist Brice Marden in 2000. She says “Brice said he has a fixed set of parameters to guide his art practice – and that he subsequently has the freedom to break those parameters. I began to think about that when I played Scrabble: a game with a fixed set of parameters, 100 tiles; 225 squares. How many variations from that beginning might occur?” This innovative series of prints is a creative record incorporating many facets of the game. Each set of prints is presented as an artist’s book.
Born in Pittsburgh, Kermes has lived and worked in England, where she received her Masters in Contemporary Fine Art Practice in 2008 from Leeds Metropolitan University. Her paintings were collected extensively while in the UK. Kermes returned to Baltimore in 2009 and has since focused her practice on both painting and the making of artist books. She has exhibited widely in the UK and in the US at venues including Pyramid Atlantic Book Arts Fair, Waldorf School of Baltimore, Minas Gallery, and Maryland Art Place.
