The exhibition discussed in the article, aptly named ‘Under Erasure’, is a display of works centered around ‘works that employ erasure as a technique’. Artists have utilized erasure as a basis for mark-making, literary device, or to posit in a political argument. This article spoke to me because it engages with such a unique idea- the purposeful expunction of words. I considered it as an exercise in conceptual negative space, which we discussed briefly in class as an element of composition. Then that made me question- can artists create conceptual compositions (arranging ideas instead of content)?
