Three Double Tales is the first monographic publication on Aurélien Froment’s work. Published in three languages and designed in collaboration with Åbäke, the book revisits the artist’s interest in the questions of translation and wordplay. A photography book, an exhibition catalogue as well as an artist book, Three Double Tales unites three projects that share the use of photography, and whose sources – places and fantasy – have structured Froment’s work for the past fifteen years.
