Known for her expressive text-based works, Despina Stokou began utilizing a new vocabulary by swapping text for emojis in her recent solo exhibition Ghosting at Eigen + Art (Leipzig). Referring to the ubiquitous pictorial characters as a "new alphabet," Stokou arranges oft-used emojis to create a hieroglyphic narrative. Sadmojis employs this new digital language to traverse the spectrum of human emotion, illustrating a series of emojis that touch on stress, sadness, and general malaise.
Framing option is black or white painted wood, 7/8" wide flat face and 7/8" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
