Timur Si-Qin

Solo show

"Take me, i love you"

Washington DC, USA
2020
Services : Typographic direction, Graphic design, Design development

The studio collaborated with the international contemporary artist Timur Si-Qin for the occasion of his solo show “Take Me, I Love You” at the VonAmmon co gallery in Washington DC, USA.
This full-scale show is the first of its kind in the United States, and features eleven new works by the artist. These works are a combination of 3d printed sculptures, computer-generated landscapes and branded graphics from the artist’s meta project: New Peace. New Peace is a proposal for a new form of spirituality in the face of global pandemics, climate change, and the collapsing of biodiversity.

For this collaboration, our mission was to work on an unseen series of pieces presented for the occasion by the artist. Under Timur’s creative direction, we have wor­ked to define, develop & enrich the visual grammar and graphic line of "Edgelit", a collection of 4 sculptures/installations. These works of arts mix numerous printing and fabrication techniques such as 3D/UV print, Laser cut/engravings or LED lights systems. The first step of this process was to develop an exclusive new typeface that would fit Timur’s concept. We then assisted the artist designing and displaying the graphic elements on the 4 sculptures.

New Peace is an artwork in the form of a campaign to articulate a spirituality of symbiosis for the 21st century. New Peace comprises four modules or ideas : Undivided Ground (Immanence), Faith In Pattern (Emergence), Pray to Scale (Higher power) & Purpose From Difference (Contingency). These concepts are possible sources for imagining a contemporary spirituality today. The iconography of each source is represented in acrylic and 3d printed sculptures in the exhibition.
