Sara Glaxia — Serpentine Illusions

This book is the second collaboration between Sara Glaxia and Juli Susin after the installation «Hotel Ibis Expansion» created and set up in October 2004 in the hotel room of Raymond Pettibon in Montreuil-sous-Bois. The entire space of the room was completely filled with paper balls, soaked with ink and bourbon. 10 years later, when the artists brought up questions about the size of the book they were about to create. The answer was : «very small».

The book contains 60 drawings and texts from Sara Glaxia realized in Paris between 2012 and 2015. The 28 copies were bound in the workshops of Annick Bienvenu.
4 unique box sets contain embroidery realized by Frederick Petit from the artist’s drawings.

Matali Crasset & Juli Susin — Voyage en Uchronie

Voyage en Uchronie is a book that was created following the movie «Voyage en Uchronie» directed by Matali Crasset, Juli Susin and Julia Rublow in June 2013, and presented at Thaddaeus Ropac’s, in Pantin. The action of the movie takes place in a forest where Pythagorus has lived. In that forest, a tribe carries out imaginary rituals, and a herd of wild bores meets around a plane. The movie asks the question of the temporal transgression and the book-object Voyage en Uchronie is a possible answer. Each book-object contains archives from the project, photographs, as well as an accessory (a cape designed by matali crasset) that was used during the shooting.

12 copies.
