Michel Mazzoni - White Noise, ARP2 Editions, 2013, Bruxelles

 

Softcover, edition of 500, design by Design Dojo, text by Michel Poivert.

"Optical Soliloquy. Removed from sight but subjected to the intensity of visibility. This paradox could serve as an introduction into Michel Mazzoni’s world. Everything seems to have disappeared there; beings leave only traces of their passage, or when they do appear, the concealment of the—always female—faces in this feigned indifference provides the screen onto which desire can be projected. This is as much a journey of initiation as it is an escape into memory, with its images of transcursion and what is traversed: a path, corridor, footpath, an opening, stairs, gaps and roads. They are always mental images, in black and iridescent, sometimes even blinding white—images which come to us after an effort, such as a race or the search for oneself."
