Poems by Bei Dao / iPad Drawings by Francesco Clemente, created exclusively for this book.
While Francesco Clemente's art has explored a great variety of mediums, from fresco to pastel, from encaustic to watercolor, from oil paint to tempera, There must be someone to rewrite love sees the artist having created a series of drawings using the iPad and photography for the first time. In a palimpsest-like process, creating an image upon the remnants of past mark-making, Clemente uploaded photographs that he had taken to his iPad, then created digitized drawings directly in response to these. Furthermore, each of these works is itself the result of Clemente's collaboration with the Nobel Prize nominee, Chinese poet Bei Dao; the two created a book of poetry and responsive drawings with titles including Arrival, Creation, Perfect, Background, February, Progress, Bright Mirror and Morning.
