The Fèdre drawings hang in the atelier for final selection, January 2009.
A series of 33 images were chosen and printed in lithography. From these, 3 different sets of 11 prints were selected. Each set is boxed in a slip case, accompanied by texts and colophon.
Fèdre was unveiled at the artist's solo show in March at the Claudine Papillon Gallery, Paris. It can also be seen this spring at the vitrine at 18, rue Dauphine, Paris 6; the Force de l'Art exhibit, Grand Palais; and at the bookstore 78, rue Mazarine Paris 6.
