Peter Nencini at Direktorenhaus

A new edition of Peter Nencini's Handwerk is currently exhibted in Berlin at Direktorenhaus. These works are a prelude to a larger show in September.  Nencini says: "I'm showing thirty boxes... The boxed variant pieces have grown, with markmaking of granular character. Both to magnify surface and to dispense with textual information in favour of something mute."
