7 Despalles Éditions Cozette de Charmoy Oracle quotations by St. John’s Revelation, Herodotus, Hans Jonas, Etel Adnan pigment-inkjet 35,5 x 26 50 +7
Cozette de Charmoy, oracle
Relying on Greek mythology, Cozette de Charmoy develops her vision of past and contemporary conflicts in History. For this artist/author, Gaia’s myth, the myth of Mother Earth, the defeat of the original Woman, has become the metaphor for the calamity weighing on the world today. The composition of the book takes its source in ancient drama: a narrator, a commentator, a chorus and a priestess succeed each other. Plastic elements and literary ones overlap in order to make a rich visual poem, vibrant with color and form, integrating in a tightly knit weaving: oracle, prophecy, philosophy and poetry.

7 Despalles Éditions Johannes Strugalla ères / Johannes Strugalla Forma Ovid pigment-inkjet 30,5 x 21 38 +6
What makes the beauty of the human body (in Latin forma) ? The artist investigates the illusory quality of beauty and the impact of the drawn line.
Johannes Strugalla draws the contours of « models » photographed in various magazines, with a reed pen and india ink on a damp Japanese paper. The lines get thus lightly smeared. The beautiful form, is reduced to a line and the evocative power of the shape in the photograph appears in a different light, producing another kind of beauty.

19   Anton Würth Anton Würth, Carnet 13 copper engraving 23 x 17,5 cm 12 + 2 E.A. 38 pages, Formally the turning of the pages is essential to the reading process of a book. In this work I emphasize this aspect of front- and backside of each page. An arabesque movement within a basic form alternates with an ornamental braid on the edge of the form. Everytime the movement remains dependend of the boundary. One half of each motiv is on the right (front-)side of the page and the other part is on the left (back-)side – suggesting a symmetry.
