Leif Elggren - Un peu comme voir dans la nuit (+ CD)
A collection of original poems Leif Elggren wrote between 1970 and 2013 and translated for the first time into French. With illustrations by the author.
Limited edition of 450 numbered copies.

A series dedicated to sound arts, based on a cultural, musical and literary long term project, “Rip on/off” is directed by Christian Indermuhle and Thibault Walter, published by Van Dieren editions.
Active since the late 1970s, Leif Elggren is one of the most constantly surprising and mysterious conceptual artists to work in the combined fields of audio and video. A writer, visual artist, stage performer and composer, he has numerous audio releases to his credit, working individually and also with the Sons of God (along with Kent Tankred). His music, often conceived as the soundtrack to visual installations or experimental stage performances, presents carefully selected sound sources over a long stretch of time and can range from mesmerizingly quiet electronics to harsh noise. His wide-ranging and investigative body of work consistently involves dreams and mysterious narratives, often inverting social hierarchies to ultimately subvert the real with poetical matter.
Edited and translated from the English by Lionel Bize, Laura Daengeli, Christian Indermuhle, Christine Ritter, Thibault Walter.
