THE ORIGINAL, THE TRANSLATION  WILL TAKE PLACE SIMULTANEOUSLY AT BIBLIOTHÈQUE KANDINSKY – CENTRE NATIONAL D’ART ET DE CULTURE GEORGES POMPIDOU ON APRIL 24, 2019 AND AT YVON LAMBERT BOOKSHOP ON APRIL 17, 2019.

FOLLOWING THE INVITATION ADDRESSED TO HIM BY BIBLIOTHÈQUE KANDINSKY, LORIS GRÉAUD HAS CONCEIVED A MODULAR, PROGRESSIVE AND EVOLVING STRUCTURE WHICH WILL ALLOW VISITORS AND READERS ALIKE TO DISCOVER THE GLOBAL SCOPE OF HIS PUBLISHING ACTIVITY, HIS RESEARCH, ARTIST BOOKS, AND LIMITED EDITIONS DEVELOPED FOR 20 YEARS. THE BIBLIOTHÈQUE KANDINSKY HOLDS AND PRESERVES LORIS GRÉAUD’S LASTING PRODUCTION OF PUBLICATIONS AND ARTIST BOOKS IN THEIR ENTIRETY, WHILST THE ARTIST IS COMMITTED TO DONATE SYSTEMATICALLY TO THE LIBRARY ONE COPY OF HIS FUTURE EDITORIAL VENTURE.

FOR THE PRESENT OCCASION, LORIS GRÉAUD HAS CONCEIVED A MODULAR, PROGRESSIVE AND EVOLVING STRUCTURE WHICH WILL INVEST THE PUBLIC READING SPACE OF BIBLIOTHÈQUE KANDINSKY AND WILL ALLOW VISITORS AND READERS ALIKE TO DISCOVER THE GLOBAL SCOPE OF HIS PUBLISHING ACTIVITY, HIS RESEARCH, ARTIST BOOKS, AND LIMITED EDITIONS.

THE SPECIFIC STRUCTURE FINDS AN ACCURATE BALANCE BETWEEN EXHIBITION SPACE, READING SITE AS WELL AS STORAGE STACKS, GIVING THE RARE OPPORTUNITY TO INTERACT WITH FRAGILE OBJECTS AND ARCHIVAL MATERIAL. THE STRUCTURE WILL BE CONSISTENTLY RE-ACTIVATED IN DIFFERENT DISPLAY SITUATIONS IMAGINED BY THE GRÉAUDSTUDIO EDITIONS.

THE INSTALLATION IS BOUND TO EVOLVE AND DEVELOP ACCORDING TO FUTURE OBJECTS THAT WILL BE ADDED TO THE ENSEMBLE, GIVING THE POSSIBILITY OF A NEW AND EVER-CHANGING DISPLAY GIVEN DIFFERENT SITE SPECIFICITIES AND MOMENT OF EXHIBITING, INCLUDING THE PERMANENT COLLECTIONS.

INSPIRED BY EDOUARD GLISSANT’S ARCHIPELAGO METAPHOR, THE ARTIST’S INTERVENTION WILL TRAVERSE CENTRE POMPIDOU’S ARCHITECTURE AND WILL BE PUNCTUTATED BY THE CONSTANT FLOW AND FEED OF BOOKS.

PARALLEL TO THIS DISPLAY, THE YVON LAMBERT BOOKSHOP IN PARIS, IN COMPLICITY WITH GALERIE MAX HETZLER, WILL HOST LORIS GRÉAUD’S SITE-SPECIFIC INTERVENTION THAT CELEBRATES TEN YEARS OF A PARTICULARLY RICH COLLABORATION BETWEEN THE ARTIST AND HIS FORMER GALLERIST YVON LAMBERT, WHO ACCOMPANIED HIM AND CONTRIBUTED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF NUMEROUS EXPERIMENTS. CONCEIVED AS A MYSTERIOUS TRIBUTE TO THEIR AESTHETIC ADVENTURE INITIATED IN 2007, THE WORK THE ORIGINAL IS UNFAITHFUL TO THE TRANSLATION IS MADE OF DIFFERENT MATERIALS THAT WERE COLLECTED ON THE PREMISES OF A CRASH TESTS FACTORY.

AS A NOD TO THE ARTISTIC AND CONCEPTUAL COMPLICITY THAT TIES THEM SINCE THEY BEGAN THEIR COLLABORATION, THE WORK TINGES WITH IRRESOLUTION, DELIBERATELY OSCILLATING BETWEEN SCULPTURE AND PAINTING. THE TRANSCRIBED QUOTE REFERS TO A FAMOUS SENTENCE FROM JORGE LUIS BORGES (1899-1986) THAT SOWS SEEDS OF DOUBT WITH RESPECT TO THE CONCEPT OF THE ORIGIN AND ITS TRANSLATION. IN THE PREMISES OF THE YVON LAMBERT BOOKSHOP, THE WORK ECHOES THE POTENTIAL OF A PUBLISHING ACTIVITY THAT WOULD NOT ONLY TO TRANSLATE OR ADAPT BUT RATHER TO CREATE AND AROUSE.

THEIR SHARED LOVE FOR BOOKS AND EDITING LED LORIS GRÉAUD AND YVON LAMBERT TO THE PRODUCTION OF A SIGNIFICANT BIBLIOPHILE BOOK, [I], THE STATEMENT (2013). THIS PUBLICATION WAS PART OF THE PRESTIGIOUS COLLECTION «UNE RÊVERIE ÉMANÉE DE MES LOISIRS » («MUSING FROM MY LEISURES») ESTABLISHED BY THE MERCHANT, WITH THE INVOLVEMENT OF SOME OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ARTISTS OF THE 20TH AND 21ST CENTURY.

THIS PUBLICATION WILL BE MADE AVAILABLE WITHIN THE MODULAR AND EVOLVING STRUCTURE SPECIFICALLY CONCEIVED FOR THE BIBLIOTHÈQUE KANDINSKY AND WILL SOON BE FOLLOWED BY A LIMITED EDITION OF 20 COPIES OF THE ORIGINAL, THE TRANSLATION, REINITIATED BY THE TWO ACOLYTES.
