RESIGN / SUBJECT
Poster

In Matt Mullican’s visual world – influenced by Roland Barthes’s semiology – the artist weaves symbols with a "SUBJECT" anchoring identity together. Per contra, the "SIGN" is central, visually and linguistically, inviting viewers to decode. Aligning with Barthes, Mullican integrates language and symbols in a playful, but structured manner. This poster reacts on the housing market, where signing becomes a semiotic gesture, encoding meanings in legal frameworks, illustrating semiotics’ pervasive role in daily life through a linguistic riddle.
