Pierre LeguillonLa légende punaisée dans le ciel

57 EUROS

“The notes transcribed in this manual were intended for the production of a book, imagined during the winter of 2003-2004, while Pierre Leguillon was resident at the Villa Medici, the French Academy in Rome. For a few weeks, he remained cloistered at home, living in a totally different way, in the hope of finding the form that his book would take.

This book attempted to adapt a sound slide projection to the space of the page, a format that the artist had been using exclusively for the past ten years. The formulas, peremptory in tone and definitive in character, were almost always written in felt-tip pen and in capital letters, very late at night or in the late hours of the morning.

This book has still not seen the light of day, but will it ever equal the entity formed by these contradictory ideas? For this jumble, reworked in these pages so that it can be shared, outlines an ideal form, coveted by many others before it.

After seventeen years of maturation, Surfaces Utiles and Cultura, a printer in Wetteren, Belgium, have combined their know-how to bring this “non-book” into existence. It is almost heroic.”
