In connection to Gabor Palotai’s solo exhibition, Unreadable Patterns at Hotel Skeppsholmen, Stockholm, a souvenir was commissioned. The souvenir should remind the international guests of their stay at the hotel during the exhibition, and fit the display case at the reception.
The idea of “an exhibition in a box” developed from the thought of dollhouse-sized-pictures without frames, in contrast to the large framed images exhibited. Each box contains fourteen silkscreen printed images. They evoke reading as ways of seeing. Seen as deconstructed typography, where letters vanish into patterns, these images are longer bound to language, and hence have several meanings. Gabor Palotai
