The Zemun Cycle of Silkscreened Graphics

Last summer, my friends Johanna Marcadé and Bruno Tolić, organizers of Novo Doba festival, helped me produce this silkscreened poster, a portrait of singer Valerie June, at their Zemun studio, near Belgrade. —  As Bruno put it, “This is yet the beginning of a great cycle…” (I hope so.)

L’été dernier, mes amis Johanna Marcadé et Bruno Tolić, organisateurs du festival Novo Doba, m’ont aidée à produire cette affiche, un portrait en sérigraphie de la chanteuse Valerie June, à leur atelier à Zemun, près de Belgrade. — Comme l’a dit Bruno, “C’est seulement le début d’un grand cycle…” (j’espère bien.)

Trying to Figure Out — Conversation with Lia Perjovschi, Oct 12

joint effort — diagram by Lia Perjovschi, portraits by Nastasia Louveau

Starting from Lia Perjovschi’s early performance work of the 1980’s and scrutinizing how it relates to her current artistic practice of opening new spaces of knowledge and re-organizing those spaces, Louveau & Perjovschi want to propose a conversation about performance art, the connection of art and research, and different approaches to filling gaps with art, thus shortcutting 30 years of artistic practice and its context from communism to capitalism, from the local to the global art scene.

Japanskizzen

I just found an old sketchbook from my Japan trip to Tokyo and Sapporo in 2014. Here are a few culinary highlights.

Je viens tout juste de retrouver un carnet contenant des croquis de mon voyage à Tokyo et Sapporo en 2014. Voici quelques délicatesses appréciées et croquées en chemin.

Une erreur s’est glissée dans ce dessin : cette boisson sucrée à base de riz fermenté s’écrit avec un Z, amazake et non amasake…Japan-Sketchbook_AmasakeJapan-Sketchbook_EdamameJapan-Sketchbook_UmeShu_colorsJapan-Sketchbook_Vintage_AdJapan-Sketchbook_Yuzu_colors
