With the exhibition “Runes” (September 30-October 30, 2016), Grems opens the first chapter in a series, taking up a carte blanche invitation to make unrestricted use of the Zirkumflex space and culminating in a mural and a limited edition collection of printed illustrations in collaboration between Grems and Zirkumflex.

As a “Paleo-graffer” Grems explores the anatomy and geometry of proto-alphabets. He harnesses a unique grasp of the letter and fascinating geometric abstractions, which is able to portray on any medium. For the exhibition, he has developed graphemes inspired by the runic alphabet.

A limited edition run of 50 of five Riso-printed posters by Inkwell Press.
This collection consists of four original duotone illustrations by Grems and a fifth designed in collaboration with the studio Zirkumflex. Five exclusive customised boxes that gather the complete series are also released especially for this occasion.

On Friday, September 30, 2016 the exhibition successfully celebrated an opening night, from 19h until late with about 400 attendees. It was accented by hip hop, deep house, broken beats of Grems and other guests like Léonard de Léonard and was broadcasted live on Unknown Radio. Crêpes Maman, a stylish food truck was on location to feed the guests.
