All posters produced by M/M (Paris) for CDDB-Théâtre de Lorient since 1996, with comments by Eric Vigner, Bénédicte Vigner, and Mathias Augustyniak (edition completed with a photographic booklet and the theater's 20th anniversary programming).
“The posters designed by M/M grab the viewer's attention, but they refuse to give much away. Until you get a rudimentary grip, they aren't going to tell you anything. They raise the possibility that you can communicate better by holding something back, extending themselves beyond their frames to create meanings decipherable only in context. This way, they privilege the community and promote the construction of a positive local identity.”
Limited edition of 1500 numbered copies.
M/M (Paris) is a creative partnership between Mathias Augustyniak (born 1967 in Cavaillon) and Michael Amzalag (born 1968 in Paris),
founded in 1992. Working within the framework of language and design, they practice
across many cultural fields. Unfettered by the structures of disciplinary boundaries, these
self-described artists perceive their professional title to be Strategic Creative Directors.
From their Parisian studio, M/M has worked and developed strong relationships with
musicians (Björk, Madonna, Jean-Louis Murat...); contemporary artists
(Philippe Parreno, Pierre Huyghe, Liam Gillick, Sarah Morris, Gabriela Fridriksdottir, François Curlet, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster...); fashion designers (Yohji Yamamoto, Jil Sander, Balenciaga, Givenchy,
Stella McCartney…); and magazines (Vogue Paris, i-D, Purple Fashion, Arena Homme+, Interview, Frog, eDEN, Stream, Documents sur l'art...); and with cultural institutions (Palais de Tokyo,
Musée d'Art Moderne and Centre Pompidou in Paris, Le Consortium in Dijon, The Desde
Foundation in Athens, the Serpentine Gallery in London…).
