In Between

 - In Between
Conceived on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at Le Bal, Paris, this publication is a poetic, abstract, fragile attempt to translate something of our times: being in a state of suspension. It subverts the idea of a traditional catalogue to transcribe this intangible and indefinable state through a continuous stream of black-and-white images supported by excerpts from Jacques-Henri Michot's Un ABC de la barbarie.
Conceived by Bartolomé Sanson, Diane Dufour and Julie Héraut, the book borrows the simplicity of black and white fanzines and unfolds in a continuous stream of images, like a suspended trace of the works in the exhibition. Excerpts from Jacques-Henri Michot's Un ABC de la barbarie—an inventory of media language clichés that contaminate everyday life—seep into its pages. Like a multitude of shards, images of the works featured in the exhibition oppose this desertion of words and thought. A gesture of resistance to immediacy, this publication is an attempt to give poetic form of the intangible.
