By language we understand two things: a concrete, spoken or written sign system and a method of interaction, of action. In their works, RELAX (chiarenza & hauser & co) always refer to both aspects, which they play off against each other in a lustfully ironic, yet linguistically precise way. Language-image, text-image: spaces for overlapping and interference, places of sign (setting) and representation. The white field set on the checkered ground leads a kind of life of its own: Here the rigid, technical grid, there the graphic gesture of (hand-) written expression. What kind of connection points are there, where does the statement take place? The slogans nestle themselves in the minds of the people, the letters that are drawn several times and the almost anagrammatic writing variants testify to a certain insistence on the desire to formulate something correctly. Finally, the three sheets also demonstrate how meaning is constituted by means of interacting processes of marking and decoding, of coding and decoding. (Irene Müller)
