Jennifer Haley - Junrei

Jennifer Haley
40 pages
Digital printing
£7 plus shipping

"Junrei (巡礼 / Pilgrimage)follows the loose narrative of a journey, both physical, from England to Japan, and emotional as a series of personal experiences following an innate gravitation towards Japanese culture. The series of fragmented snapshots hint at the process of travelling yet offer neither an indication of a final destination nor an explanation of anything achieved. Dealing with the conflict between estrangement and comfort found in the isolation from the culture and places visited, the series is motivated by the spiritual pilgrimages common in the cultures represented."

"Whenever I move to a new city on my own, I have the same sort of experience within my first few days. I go to a bar, I sit down, stumble my way through ordering a beer in whatever language is spoken (often with lots of hand gesturing) and take a look around. Inevitably, I end up with a similar scene in front of me: a couple fighting, a couple in love, an awkward date, an older man alone. [...]" – Gabi Manga

Nicolas Guiraud - Anthropocène

Nicolas Guiraud
Text by Marie Darrieussecq
114 pages, 19,5 x 24,5 cm
700 copies
offset 4 colors
28 euros

"In less than 200 years man has altered life on earth forever. The Anthropocene is the new geological age, an age in which the human species has become the prevailing geophysical force dominating all other natural forces that have hitherto impacted upon the earth. (….) The fact that humanity has become the dominant force for the planet augurs the death of this idea of nature and, paradoxically, dissolves the frontier that has hitherto separated us from the natural world. Ours is now a world rid at last of the very idea of nature; a purely artificial world, innocent, fragile and hazardous. Eden is right here and now. To accept this idea is to accept a kind of serene jubilation before the enigmatic beauty of a world in decay."
