37 Quai des Corsaires - Bayonne France
19 November 2016
“La suite basque” is now taking place in the historical town of Bayonne. Can I say that it’s probably my most experimental series which came same time with YOKAINOSHIMA and right after BRETONNES. Without the BRETONNES series, I would have never walked in this direction. It’s like if LA SUITE BASQUE was still made of the silhouettes of WILDER MANN, with its landscapes, but this time, the abstraction is holding a key on this work. There will be another silhouettes series exhibited soon, in Rouen, titled “L’épopée de Jeanne”. More soon.
This project following the invitation of Association COOP contains six photographic sequences titled: “Ainarak/Exiliados, Sorginak, Gernika, Irudi, La porte du Milieu”.
Texts by Marie Darrieussecq and introduction by Martine Sadion.

After WILDER MANN, YOKAINOSHIMA is the second chapter of my research about rural masquerades in the world. The book came out last month in Japanese (Seigensha), English (Thames&Hudson), French (Actes Sud) and Italian (Peliti). It will take a few weeks before seeing the book in the good bookshops, and you can already find it online.
