This project, conceived by Stéphane Pencréac’h and Michael Woolworth with a contribution by the author D.O.A., brings together twenty photographic portraits chosen of politicians in office in 2020. In the images, selected from the public domain, each looks directly at the camera. On the opposite page, citizens protest or show support for their leader in the capital of their respective countries. All images were printed by hand in photolithography, with texts in letterpress Futura type. The checkerboard image on the box was hand-printed in silkscreen, and the sculpture of the king chess piece was cast in bronze. The two pieces of wood for the box generally are used by painters as canvas stretchers.
This book was published in a limited edition of 40 copies, each numbered and signed by the authors from 1/40 to 40/40
and printed on Rives vellum paper 270g, with the cover on Rives vellum paper 300g.
The first twenty copies are in French, the other twenty in English. Twenty copies are in a deluxe edition in a wooden box
decorated with a sculpture cast in bronze, with the other twenty in a cardboard slipcase.
Book Format: 38 x 38 cm.
Wooden box format: 40 x 40 cm.
Price for Wooden box edition: 3 000 €
Price for Slipcase edition: 1 800 €
Pencréac’h’s first artist’s book in the shop is literally a world (monde) turned upside-down, transforming pages of the famous French daily Le Monde through trichlo transfer.
For his second, L’enfer, we developed a technique for transferring his erotic collages onto sandpaper, illustrating the painful aspect of love. A clandestine object, the book is presented in a metal case with a bronze sculpture incorporating a padlock.
