Loin Hop is Patrice Carré's second substantial monograph. Designed by Thibaut Robin, the book is organized as a playful, sonorous and refined landscape to be browed in any direction. Its colorful climate varies from one place to the next and its format matches Hergé's adventure comic albums.
Through a hundred and twenty reproductions of Patrice Carré's sculptures, installations, objects, situations, photomontages and photographs, three texts by Catherine Elkar, Lise Guéhenneux and Emmanuel Latreille, two reproductions of fetish paintings four hundred and six years apart from each other, a long interview with Alexandre Castant, forty-six very graphic iconographic notes, the reader will discover the artist's work from the late '80s onward.
Born 1957, Patrice Carré lives and works in Marseille.
