TYPA GalleryExhibition

“DOT, LINE, WAVE” by Julia Syrzistie is a playful exploration of the different visual choices for adding diacritical and punctuation marks to typefaces.

The exhibition aims to draw attention to the often overlooked (and relatively small in size) marks as the lead role of the show, by presenting a series of prints where the marks have been enlarged.
Julia Syrzistie is a designer and printmaker, working predominantly in letterpress. She is interested in exploring metal type, wood type, and other letterpress tools both through processes, as well as the themes within her work through design-focused research and visual experimentation.
Throughout the 10 months spent in Tartu, she has been exploring TYPA’s archival type collection. Being particularly interested in diacritical marks found in Estonian alphabet, she was drawn to the dots, lines and waves of Ö’s and Õ’s in wood type – often a hand-carved addition to a finished typeface based on the printmaker’s need for Estonian characters.
The exhibition will open at TYPA gallery on the 9th of December at 6pm, offering visitors a chance to get a glimpse of Syrzistie’s expedition into the world of type.
Exhibition is free and open for the visitors on during museum opening times: Wed-Sun 12pm-6pm
