Rafaël Rozendaal launches a new haiku book today (August 23rd, 18.00h) at Material in Zürich, together with the opening of a new haiku exhibition. The exhibition is curated by Jan Steinbach and the book is published by Spheres publications.
Rafaël Rozendaal on his Haiku (short poems inspired by the Japanese tradition): “In Japanese art, the idea applies that the physical entity of a work of art is not essential. I find it interesting to distribute my work in different ways. When you scroll past a Haiku on Instagram, your concentration is very different from when you read them bundled in a book, or view them in a gallery as an isolated wall painting.’Publication date: 23 Aug '18
