On Friday April 20 at MABB2018 (Malmö Artist's Book Biennal) we are very happy and proud to present "Ensō / Rondo" by Cecilie Bjørgås Jordheim.
This box contains 31 Ensō / Rondo cards, hand drawn on the first 31 days of 2018 by Cecilie Bjørgås Jordheim. Printed and packed in handmade boxes by Timglaset Press.
Staff lines in a circle, hand drawn with a rolling ink stamp, in one uninhibited stroke; the ensō is a practice related to zen and the idea of wabi-sabi; often explained as the beauty of imperfection. The straff lines suggesting the rondo: a repetitive and circular way of composing music.
Combined with the idea of the sustained or repeated tone in minimalistic drone-based music, often characterised by lengthy audio performances, the ensō, on the other hand, is a documentation of the creator’s state of mind and the context of creation in a brief period of time.
First edition 30 copies, of which 17 are for sale. Remaining copies will be sold starting April 23 at www.timglaset.com, 20euro + postage & packing. Second edition 20 copies will be made to order.
