Based on his Point Blank Press series, the Belgian artist Peter Morrens produced a new multiple: a painted object entitled ‘Nazicht’. It can be a scale model for a larger sculpture and possibly, a small blow to your face, a silly insult, a friendly request, or a recalcitrant remark. However, partly due to its fragile form, it remains a balancing act. Some letters can possibly be cut off, creating new meanings.
Point Blank Press is a Direct Language agency with the maker as sole employee. The artist as an auditory flycatcher. The result is a series of drawings on school notebook paper, depicting captured text fragments (approx. 2500 drawings): persistent, rough, awkward and undisciplined. The title Point Blank indicates that neither a skill nor a goal is required: it is a pure, inevitable collision. Language saved from the genuine contingency.
