Wren’s interest in the lost art of cursive writing, the threat to the physical book, the acquisition and loss of knowledge through reading and forgetting is the engine that steers her work. The logical and orderly progression of books, paragraphs, sentences, and words are negated and this erasure of structure makes the language illegible; coded marks are ever present yet the meanings have become irretrievable. The work is informed by art in relation to semiotics, linguistics, visual poetry, and conceptual writing. By obsessively writing out the first few pages of books Wren attempts to collect, preserve, honour, and ritualize knowledge. The calligraphic lines of cursive writing build a typographical landscape by overlapping words rich with lyrical meanings, structures, and signs.
