Nyma Graphia Cifra is a publication by Ayami Awazuhara, Valentina Jager and Anna M. Szaflarski.. Nyma Graphia Cifra pairs sculptural form to the ambiguous and morphable nature of language, playing and transforming the linguistic abilities of crafts.
The artworks in the exhibition were produced together with local artisans in Oaxacan ateliers namely textile and ceramic to create hybrid constructions that combine the artists previous research with local influences from Oaxaca.
Interested in forms that have been developed in craft, and understanding them as visual records of history, culture and a form of communication, Nyma Graphia Cifra searches for the parameters of the patterns studied, as well as, uncovers when and where those rules can become flexible. By way of play, the artists explore the plural possibilities of those forms and bring attention to the fundamental way, in which, like language, material can be shifted and changed, yet only retains meaning when is in constant correspondence with an agreed upon system. The publication includes three fictional text pieces and a full poster image from each artist.
