|Christophe Rey||2||artist's editions|
|2||art and book fairs|
Christophe Rey is an artist who is particularly interested in photography and its history as well as in the cinema, architecture and literature. His long journeys – preferably across Canada or the United States – have enabled him to build up an extensive photographic archive which provides him with a major source of inspiration for his writing. His texts, often concise, express deep introspection. Yet, without restricting himself to a purely autobiographical approach, the artist’s keen eye goes far beyond mere ‘impressions of a journey’ and is infused with a social, moral or political awareness drawn mostly from the very heart of cities.

ALPHABET EDITIONS is an alphabetical display of the CEC’s editions (1989-2014), a possibility to see again everything or to purchase a book, a print or a multiple during this “winter sale”. WINTER SALE is neither a sale nor an auction or a sale, but simply the presentation of the still available editions, a new display, a Christmas market and above all a support for the CEC. (more…)

T like text, of course, or temporary, tentative, turn of phrase, trove, trouble, tension… tea time and T. Rex.
T is an exhibition which offers several possibilities of texts. Artists’ texts that can be images, signs or also an abstract, a description, an explanation, a manifesto, a recollection, a quotation, a poem, a story…
T is a round-trip from text to work, from work to text: a new exercise.
T, it’s some simple sheets of A4 paper, several proposals of printed matter (tracts or small posters), but also a letter, a recording, a distribution or even a republishing, the publication of a work already completed or the layout of a future publication; a model. (more…)
