Description for the presentation 2015-2016 in the National Museum of Modern Art

La grande momie belongs to the ensemble called "verbal crystallisations" that Paul-Armand Gette exhibited for the first ti me at the Jacques Matarasso gallery in Nice, in 1960. Aggregated wooden print characters of different sizes suggest a body shape or the shell of an insect. Marked by Dada poetry and the Surrealist exquisite corpses, Gette created sculptures that echoed his poetic practice, playing with free association of ideas, releasing the characters from the language. Gette participated in some publications of the Lettrists and shared with them an enthusiastic interest in typography.
