Vesna Tusek The Slow Act of Writing

Artist Vesna Tusek, who I am pleased to say is my sister-in-law, forms, bends and welds these sculptures out of sheet iron into tubes filled with sand, in a “slow act of writing”. Like children’s “pretend writing”, which actually is emergent writing, these forms do not actually denote any particular words (at least not in my eyes ) but still are clearly a form of writing. Or sculptured poetry.
