In the cave of civilization, will sign become reality? A.R. Penck’s artistic creating process is a journey for exploration, he researched for and examined a system of signs and his own vocabulary of painting, which is a completely new form, combined with the characters of prehistorical cave paintings and modern scientific theories. This kind of abstract semiotic system could be seen as a labyrinth of metaphors, inviting the audience to discover the answer that the author seeks: What happens when we communicate and express ourselves? How will human history evolve？From Penck’s artworks, a new visual mythology was established, and a period of historical rupture was revealed.
The six kinds of postcards are selected from A.R. Penck’s six series of paintings and sculptures. By using a series of abstract symbols, such as matchstick men and eagles, Penck invites spectators to return to the intellectual history of humanity.
