Character is an artist book composed from a danced alphabet documented in a series of frontal photographic reproductions. Graphic designer Joris Kritis constructs a type specimen in rigorously playful page compositions echoing iconic logos, calligrams, graphic designs and concrete poetry. The shapes danced by choreographer Femke Gyselinck jump, turn and twist, but her body purposely doesn’t bend to illustrate the letters from A to Z. It is through Kritis’ visual configurations of the photographs that reading with the danced alphabet begins.
