This bilingual two-booklet edition brings together short assembled texts, stories and dialogues, along with notes from news media and scientific press. Several narrators, of more or less abstract identities, alternately representing materials, sculptural forms, or myself, speak out under the effect of their emotional states. Sharing mutual spaces of words and action, they mix and merge throughout the text until they become one.
This publication is the result of a collaboration with graphic designer Roxanne Maillet and reveals a research conducted on typography and letters as “bodies, receptacles, and spaces".
This edition was made as part of “Résidences Secondaires" at Parc Saint Léger, contemporary art center in Pougues-les-Eaux (France).
