Type Horses

August 3, 2011

Sunday saw us pootle around the city checking out some of the Sydney Design events that are running at the moment. First stop was Zoe Sadokierski’s exhibition Type Horses – writers and their typwriters. The window displayed some rather lovely vintage typewriters, so i was sold straight away!

Zoe has been collecting typewriters for a while and began to explore the relationship between writers, their creative process and their typewriters. She’s explored the theme from several angles including drawing the typewriters of 45 authors, producing this great print….

 

She also focused on 3 authors specifically, including Sylvia Plath, and has produced some limited edition prints and lithographs – one of which i purchased. Slightly dark and troublesome subject matter but me having a rather shallow moment couldn’t resist the shots of neon pink and illustrations!

It’s now sitting happily above my desk, yay! The exhibition is at Blank Space in Surrey Hills until Friday so head down and check it out if you’re in Sydney.
