With the Picking Up Lines exhibition, Jure Šajn explores the transformation of the visual in the format of an artist’s book. In doing so, he experiments with the procedure, recognising the visual potential of coincidence and error. The included pieces shift between photography and graphics. He explores popularised print techniques and uncovers the new possibilities for expression offered by the photocopier and risograph. His work is characterised by materiality in the use of intriguing paper grammage and raster dot size.
