To mark the publication of the latest issue of 'The Kakofonie' Broken Dimanche Press are delighted to announce that Büro BDP next plays host to Cia Rinne, a concrete, visual poet at home when pushing and furthering the poetics and semiotics of several languages. Rinne works playfully and minutely with the material aspects of language. In her poetry, the phonetic and visual elements of words lead meaning astray, and instill in language a kind of linguistic turmoil, where words merge and generate new contexts facilitated by their physical qualities rather than their semantic meanings.

For the exhibition h/ombres, Rinne will present a selection of her new work consisting of 77 postcards with typewritten texts in different languages in the space, and the sound installation sounds for soloists based on a reading of her book notes for soloists (in collaboration with Sebastian Eskildsen 2010).

The exhibition marks the publication of the forth issue of 'The Kakofonie', a special postcard edition designed by FUK laboratories Berlin. The postcard consists of a poem each by Cia Rinne and Jota Castro, a recto-verso investigation into recent objective and subjective realities, collapsing supposed historical and political opposites at the same time as challenging them.

Cia Rinne was born in Gothenburg/Sweden in 1973 and grew up in West Germany. Most recently she exhibited the work Night Calendar (in collaboration with Antonio Scarponi) at ISCP, New York, 2010. In June 2011 she will participate in the Turku Biennale, Finland. Her publications include zaroum (2001), the online work archives zaroum ( 2008), the book notes for soloists (OEI Editör, Stockholm 2009), and the sound work sounds for soloists (in collaboration with Sebastian Eskildsen, 2010). Rinne currently lives and works in Berlin.

Jota Castro was born in Yurimaguas/Peru in 1965 and has worked as a diplomat for the UN and the EU up until the late 1990s. Jota Castro's work has been extensively exhibited around the world. In 2005 he held a solo show Exposition Universelle 1 at the Palais de Tokyo. He has participated in the Venice, Tirana, Prague, Sydney, Moscow and Kwangju Biennales. In 1983 he received the Young Peruvian Poet Prize. Jota Castro lives and works in Brussels.
