A—Z

A–Z moves from Amsterdam to Zurich, with some stops along the alphabet. It hosts books, texts and other work by Tine Melzer. Melzer connects the philosophy of language with visual art and her main motif is language. She works as an artist, author and researcher and has taught at various academies and universities since 2004. She studied Fine Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam, and Philosophy at the University of Amsterdam. She undertook postgraduate research at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten and received her PhD on a research on Ludwig Wittgenstein meeting Gertrude Stein from the University of Plymouth, UK in 2014. Her work has been exhibited and published internationally.
Rollo Press recently published Taxidermy for Language-Animals: A Book on Stuffed Words by Tine Melzer.

She taught at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie Amsterdam since 2004 and worked in Amsterdam, Antwerp, Basel, Dessau, Dublin, Karlsruhe, London, Stuttgart, Turku, Utrecht and Zurich. Currently teaching at the HKB Bern University of the Arts at the transdisciplinary Y Institute and at the Department of Art & Design. Since 2017 she researches on Aspect change at the University of the Arts Bern, FSP Intermedialität.

Melzer’s work challenges language in its conceptual, image-related and philosophical aspects. Her work is bibliophilic, (typo-)graphic, interventional and public: it engages with codes and subtexts inherent in objects and signs, which often makes for multidisciplinary and collaborative work. Language-games (in the manner of Wittgenstein) and their interactions with context and media are the starting-points for works between autonomy and the commonplace. One focus is on vocabularies, which are also applied to her collaborations across disciplines, co-authorships, research and teaching. The relation between showing and saying is an important motivation for Melzer; much of her work is based on this dichotomy, which thereby provides an opportunity to challenge public works and publications. Melzer tends to take codes in everyday language literally; unstable (contextual) expression mean, for her, the basis of genuine understanding. A stuffed parrot is called Polly. Johan Deumens Gallery regularly presents her visual work.

Tine Melzer’s work has been supported by the Mondriaan Fund (Fonds voor beeldende kunsten, vormgeving en bouwkunst), Amsterdam and Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Amsterdam; in 2011, she was granted a research stipend by LAPS, Research Institute for Art and Public Space, Amsterdam. Taxidermy for Language Animals, designed by Urs Lehni, Rollo Press was selected as one of Die Schönsten Schweizer Bücher 2016 BAK, Federal Office of Culture FOC.
