Published by Siglio/Ugly Duckling Presse.
Edited by Daniel Owen, Lisa Pearson.

Argentinian artist Mirtha Dermisache (1940–2012) wrote dozens of books, hundreds of letters and postcards, and countless texts. Not a single one was legible, yet, in their promixity to language, they all resonate with a mysterious potential for meaning. Using ink on paper, Dermisache invented an array of graphic languages, each with their own unique lexical and syntactic structures. Some resemble a child’s scrawl; others feel like nets or knots or transcriptions of seismic waves. Praised by Roland Barthes in the early ‘70s for the “extreme intelligence of the theoretical problems related to writing that [her] work entails,” Dermisache’s graphisms suggest both an abstract “essence of writing” and a concrete democratization of written forms. Selected Writings, the first collection of Dermisache’s works to be published in the US, collects two complete books and a selection of texts from the early 1970s, a rich and prolific period for the artist.
