Correspondences
Heinz Peter Knes
Published by Is-Land, Aubervilliers, 2023, 128 pp. (b/w ill.), 12.5 × 19.5 cm, English
Price: €15

For thirty years, Heinz Peter Knes has developed a large body of work, focusing on photographic-documentary practice that seeks to engage image with society. Reflecting on the multiple “correspondences”, influences and interactions at the heart of his artistic work, we travel with him through the five chapters of this book, crossing paths with Josef Winkler, Hervé Guibert, Pasolini, Moyra Davey, Julie Ault, Jean-Luc Moulène, Danh Vo, Artaud and many others. Creating a new language, a sort of echo, as sensitive experience, which in a way dematerialize our perceptions, but enable “to gather” them.

i confess
Moyra Davey
Published by Dancing Foxes Press, New York & National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, 2020, 168 pages with foldout poster insert (colour & b/w ill.), 17.2 × 24 cm, English
Price: €32 (Temporarily out of stock)

Over the last forty years, Moyra Davey’s work in photography, film, and text presents a wide-ranging model of engagement with the world: reflections on producing and consuming, on writing and reading, and on novelty and obsolescence. Based on Davey’s eponymous 2019 film of the same title, i confess triangulates the lives and work of three writers: the American novelist and essayist James Baldwin, the Québécois revolutionary Pierre Vallières, and Ottawa-based political philosopher Dalie Giroux. With Baldwin’s 1962 novel Another Country as its point of departure, the narrative arrives at the work of each figure in succession, threading themes of race and poverty, language, and nationalism into Davey’s personal chronicle of the 1960s and 1970s;a turbulent period of Québécois history marked by separatism and violence, unresolved to this day.

With text by Moyra Davey, Dalie Giroux, Andrea Kunard. Designed by Santiago da Silva.
