De la Méthode

Juli Susin


I remember the weekend as a great escape, during
which he (Susin) invited us to a fishing trip. This
then became a book. We all emptied a pond near a
castle, together with some villagers, and collected the
fish to make a big meal. One might ask if this was an
artistic practice: I think it was… I have a memory of
this project as a suspended moment, at once artistic,
everyday and rooted in history.”
—Matali Crasset
The booklet, realized in the form of a passport,
documents the different stages of fishing party
(November, 1997) followed by a gastronomic meal
organized at the castle of Lorière, in the region of
Le Mans, by Henri de Bresson, Juli Susin, Gilles
Lacombe, Véronique Bourgoin and their relatives.
On the flat of the dust jacket, the drawing of a
door handle is stamped. Several fishing methods,
such as the isotropic method, the constructivist or
deconstructivist method, are stamped on the flaps of
the booklet’s folder. The edition was conceived on
the occasion of the exhibition De la Méthode in June
1998, presented at the Marion Meyer Gallery
