Rio, Tokyo, Paris: Oscar Oiwa, Brazilian artist of Japanese origin, draws from these three Olympic cities to which he is personally bound, a matter to question the world of today, inviting us to dive into his half-realistic mid-fantasy universe, where sometimes point humor and nostalgia.

It is a subtle evocation of the youth of the author of “The Stranger.”

2016
bilingual edition (English / French)

The catalogue of Daito Manabe & Motoi Ishibashi's first exhibition in France. On this occasion they created an installation using LED lights and smartphones—a new work combining the real and the virtual, the seen and the unseen. This volume also gives an overall comprehension of Manabe and Ishibashi's practice: together they merge art and technology in projects that are at the cutting edge of innovation.
