Turi Simeti (born in 1929 in Alcamo, Italy) creates in his works different types of tension on several formats, frequently relying on small-scale canvases to produce startling dimensions. Employing the motif of the oval, he has attempted to develop an irregular writing system that liberates the surface of the canvas from the principles of materiality, allowing nothing but silence.

Features texts by Natacha Carron ‘Le Choix du Signe, Brussels, 2015’ and Lea Vergine ‘Distruzione di un aliante, 1971’.

This book is published in conjunction with the exhibition Le Choix du Signe held at Almine Rech Gallery Brussels, from May 28th to July 25th, 2015.
