Rammellzee "The Equation, The Letter Racers" exhibition at Suzanne Geiss Company


The Letter Racers
“In order for Hell to freeze over the Letters must race” - RAMMELLZEE

March 8 - April 21, 2012
OPENING : March 8th , 2012 6-8 pm

The Suzanne Geiss Company is pleased to present its inaugural exhibition RAMMELLZEE: THE EQUATION, The Letter Racers. Rammellzee’s manifestoes “Iconoclast Panzerism” and “Gothic Futurism” explored graffiti’s ability to liberate the transcendental powers of the alphabet that had been corrupted by Western culture. A manifestation of the artist’s theories, his Letter Racers were created over more than 15 years in his storied loft, The Battle Station. They are being shown in New York for the first time.

“In the 14th Century the monks ornamented and illustrated the manuscripts of letters. In the 21st and 22nd century the letters of the alphabet through competition are now armamented for letter racing and galactic battles. This was made possible by a secret equation know as THE RAMMELLZEE.” Suspended in the interstice between the metaphysical and the material, the 52 Letter Racers displayed in this show are poised to activate and attack. Constructed from urban detritus - Canal Street perfume caps, spray can triggers, and king’s crown air fresheners - they are objects of human experience refracted and reconfigured to create a revised language of urban existence.

The exhibition coincides with the installation of RAMMELLZEE’s third set of Letter Racers at The Museum of Modern Art as part of the Print/Out exhibition on view from February 19th through May 14th, 2012
