Tarik Hayward, Indian Inkjet, Oraibi, Mcb-a, 2018

Réalisé à l’occasion de l’exposition Neutral Density de Tarik Hayward au Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne en 2017, Indian Inkjet est le résultat d'une année de production d'un livre - depuis sa conception jusqu'à son impression - par l'artiste lui-même. Chaque exemplaire est un objet unique réalisé dans une imprimerie autonome mise en place dans l’atelier. Grâce à des logiciels pirate, l’artiste a détourné des imprimantes de leur obsolescence programmée, les alimentant par des bidons d’encre à l’aide de tuyaux.

Né à Ibiza, Tarik Hayward vit à la Vallée de Joux. Il conçoit son travail comme: « une série d’expériences techniques réalisées dans l’urgence d’un besoin non défini ».


Produced for the Neutral Density art show at the Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts in Lausanne in 2017, Indian Inkjet is the result of the one-year process to produce a book - from its conception to its printing - by the artist himself. Every copy is a unique item made in an autonomous printing house set up in the workshop. Thanks to hacked software, the artist hijacked printers from their planned obsolescence, feeding them with tubes dipped in cans of ink. 

Born in Ibiza, Tarik Hayward lives in la Vallée de Joux. He conceives his work as « a series of technical experiments made in the urgency of an undefined need ».

Coll., Maximage Color Combinations, ECAL, 2017

This book is a tool for designers, artists and printers who are interested in personalized and unique color palettes. Created using between 2 and 5 spot colors, over 120 combinations were generated directly in the offset press by interfering with the ink unit. This unorthodox color-mixing technique helped to create more than 450 spot colors evolving over the 500 different books, turning each one into a set of totally unique combinations.

The book explores how different colors and hues can interact together, and how they can merge from one to another. Without any chapters or formulas, colors travel from shiny to matte, blue to celadon, frozen to boiling, reflective to absorbent, dark light to brain grey, spectral to metameric, sunshine to neon, from Atlanta to Albertville, or from Leipzig to Juba via Napoli and back again, in an attempt to tell infinite stories.

The user will not find here this year’s hot color nor the trends for next season. Rather, each page tells a different story that each user can relate to, reinterpret or reappropriate in their own way.

This publication follows “Maximage Formula Guide” and “Maximage Raster Guide”, and is part of the “Workflow” Research Project (R&D). It was conceived and printed during a workshop at ECAL held by Maximage and the printer Thomi Wolfensberger, Zurich.

With the participation of Giacomo Bastianelli, Mélanie Blanc, Victoire Bornhauser, Pauline Brocart, Benoît Brun, Juliette Caillault, Sebastian Davila, Ariane Delahaye, Sarah Di Venosa, Jenny Donnet-Descartes, Loïc Dupasquier, Laurence Favez, Boris Fernandez, Loana Gatti, Clément Gicquel, Marine Giraudo, Amaury Hamon, Pamela Jaton, Valentin Kaiser, Sereina Kessler, Thomas Le Provost, Vidal Mateos, Dimitri Nägele, Sophie Soulié, Laetitia Troilo, Laura-Issé Tusevo, Gwendolyn Ummel, Sabrina Vega and Matthieu Visentin.

Lous Martens, Animal Books for Jaap Zeno Anna Julian Luca, Roma Publications, 2017

Lous Martens about the book: "Seventeen years ago our grandson Jaap was born. That was the start of an animal book for Jaap. I used a dummy for the OASE journal of architecture and loosely pasted in pictures of animals that I had clipped from newspapers and magazines about art, literature and science. Plus stamps and photos from advertising brochures. Then Zeno was born and the same thing happened: an animal book for Zeno. Now I was working on two books at once. Then came Anna. Julian. Luca. At this point, there were five books-in-the-making on the table. And none of those five are finished yet. The children, as well as myself, enjoy seeing the small, ever-evolving changes. The additions. These books were never intended for the outside world where I had found all the pictures. Never intended to be published. Now they lie here, grouped into one big book, because others have convinced me it’s what they deserve."

Guy de Cointet, A Few Drawings, cneai, 2005

Fac-similé du recueil de poésie graphique autoédité par Guy de Cointet en 1975, publié suite à l'exposition « Guy de Cointet / Allen Ruppersberg – A Few Drawings / Mixed Media » à la Galerie Air de Paris en 2006.

Guy de Cointet (né en 1934 à Paris, décédé en 1983 à Los Angeles) est considéré comme l'une des figures clé du mouvement de l'art conceptuel et de l'art de la performance qui ont émergé à Los Angeles dans les années 1970. Son influence sur la scène californienne actuelle est attestée par des artistes tels que Paul McCarthy, Mike Kelley, Allen Ruppersberg ou John Baldessari. La codification, le hiéroglyphe, la typographie représentent chez Cointet, dont l'œuvre est fortement marquée par un intérêt pour les procédés de langage et notamment les techniques d'écriture de Raymond Roussel, un processus d'élaboration du mot mis en image, et de la couleur mise en forme. Ses dessins et livres attestent de son goût du mystère, des langages codés et de la cryptographie. Proche du théâtre et de la poésie sonore et visuelle (ses narrations non linéaires, ses « objets scéniques », véritables « tableaux parlants », et ses croisements entre théâtre, cinéma et danse auront des échos jusque dans les recherches actuelles d'artistes comme Catherine Sullivan), Cointet est l'auteur d'une synthèse entre culture populaire, sources littéraires, surréalisme et art minimal.

H. R. Giger, Polaroids, 9783906011, 2014

Polaroids contains a selection of unpublished photographs from the personal archives of the Swiss artist and set designer H.R. Giger. Given the ephemeral nature of the Polaroid format, these are snapshots that the artist used as references for his own work as well as for process and work documentation. He personalized many of the Polaroids that customarily lay in piles around his crowded, darkly decorated home in Zurich by scratching, painting, and drawing over the motifs in a surreal and animating style. Casual and light in their approach, the photographs intimate sex, death, pop, and his inscrutable sense of humor. They provide a view into a corner of Giger’s world that until now had remained largely overlooked.
H.R. Giger (1940-2014) was a Swiss painter, sculptor, and industrial and set designer.

Emil Michael Klein, PAINTINGS 16, BECKBOOKS, 2016

This book gathers a series of paintings by the Swiss artist Emil Michael Klein, produced between 2014 and 2016. The paintings are realised on a dark primer, which the artist covers with a white tone, leaving out lines. This series underlines the artist's move from his former studio in Renens to the new one in Zurich where he is based since 2015. Klein generally works on a group of several paintings at the same time, and takes them through different states and formes. Former works often set a starting point for new compositions, in which the form and style are adapted or changed, in a repetitive gesture. PAINTINGS 16 gathers a sequence of 24 paintings and allows the reader to easely navigate from one to another.

Emil Michael Klein was born in 1982 in Munich, lives and work in Switzerland.


Cette publication présente une série de peintures de l’artiste suisse Emil Michael Klein, produites entre 2014 et 2016. Celles-ci sont réalisées sur un fond sombre, que l’artiste couvre d’un ton blanc, en laissant des lignes apparentes. Cette série marque le déplacement de l’artiste de son ancien studio de Renens à celui de Zürich dans lequel il est installé depuis 2015. Klein travaille généralement sur un groupe de plusieurs peintures à la fois, et leur fait traverser ensemble différents états, lieux, formes. Ce sont souvent les travaux précédents qui forment un point de départ à de nouvelles compositions, dont le format et le style sont ré-adaptés, en un geste répétitif.
PAINTINGS 16 rassemble une séquence de 24 toiles et offre au lecteur la possibilité d’un mouvement fluide d’une peinture à une autre.

Emil Michael Klein est né en 1982 à Munich, il vit et travaille en Suisse.

Henri Chopin, Les Mirages des 27 / Visioni dei 27 Segni, Edizioni Morra, 1995

Henri Chopin (18 June 1922 – 3 January 2008) was a French avant-garde poet and musician: he is widely considered to be a pioneer in the recognition and distribution of sound-poetry. Besides poetry and music, his practice includes paining, graphic design, typography, independant publishing and filmmaking; Chopin's work is a barometer of the shifts in European media between the 1950s and the 1970s. 

In 1964 he created OU, one of the most notable reviews of the second half of the 20th century, and he ran it until 1974. OU's contributors included William S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Gil J Wolman, François Dufrêne, Bernard Heidsieck, John Furnival, Tom Phillips, and the Austrian sculptor, writer and Dada pioneer Raoul Hausmann. 

Chopin spent a lot of time in Naples from the beginning of the 1980s due to his collaborative projects with Peppe Morra, founder of Fondazione Morra, one of the most renowned spaces for contemporary art active within the city. Morra and Chopin worked closely together up until the final years of the French artist’s life. During this time they produced numerous publications, a large number of which were based on his stunning production of “typewriter poems”. Chopin found a new possibility for poetry both within sound and the written form; with a formal approach he constructed a new alphabetical narration that actually had no responsibility for communication.
His personal production — consisting of typewriter-poems and sound performances — is an inspired attempt to open the medium of poetry into a form described by Chopin as ‘a poetry of spaces’: demonstrating ‘the sensory superiority of sound as opposed to normal speech, and [...] free man from the straightjacket of words and letters and from his obedience to didactics.’
