About

Presentation - Présentation

(EN)  Enveloppes is a gathering of seven testimonies from seven international artists who talk about their relationships with their bodies. Each one has chosen the medium (drawing, text or photograph) and the language (French or English) they felt the most comfortable with to tell the intimate story of their relationship with their envelopes.

To showcase these contributions, a special attention has been paid to the editing of the book. We picked the paper and the format carefully, and every cover will be silkscreen printed in the atelier La Presse Purée in Rennes. Each book (limited to 130) will be numbered and the binding will be handmade. Surprises will be hidden between the pages: little objects, secrets to discover and to handle.

(FR) Enveloppes, c’est sept artistes de divers pays qui prennent la parole pour parler de leur relation avec leur corps. Chacun a choisi le médium (le dessin, le texte ou la photographie) et le langage (français ou anglais) qui lui convient le mieux pour livrer une histoire intime sur sa relation avec son enveloppe. 

Pour mettre en valeur ces témoignages, un soin tout particulier a été apporté à l’édition du livre. Nous avons choisi le papier et le format avec soin, chaque couverture sera imprimée en sérigraphie par l’atelier La Presse Purée à Rennes et chaque exemplaire (limité à 130) sera numéroté et relié à la main. Des surprises seront également glissées entre les pages du livre: de petits objets secrets à découvrir et à manipuler.

What is this kickstarter for ? - Que finance ce kickstarter ?

(EN) This project was lucky enough to get a grant from Rennes’ CRIJ. It covers half of the printing cost, and with this kickstarter we are trying to cover the other half, the production cost and to pay the artists. It’s also an opportunity to sell the books : we are not planning to release it in bookshops as we are aiming for something simple and intimate.

(FR) Ce projet a obtenu une bourse du CRIJ de Rennes qui couvre la moitié des frais d’impression, avec ce kickstarter nous essayons de couvrir l’autre moitié des frais, les coûts de production et surtout de rémunérer les artistes. C’est aussi l’occasion de proposer les ouvrages en vente: leur sortie en librairie n’est pas prévue, il s’agit d’un projet de petite envergure qui vise la simplicité et l’échange de personne à personne.

What’s inside - Le contenu
