Pierre Leguillon - Dubuffet Typographe - (SIC) 2013

A tribute to the French artist Jean Dubuffet (19011985) and to the typographic strategies with which Dubuffet achieves, on a visual level, his plan to destroy language through books and lithographs. Traveling to public and private archives such as la Fondation Dubuffet in Paris, the Bibliothèque Kandinsky at Centre Pompidou or to IMEC in Caen, Pierre Leguillon has photographed ephemera such as invitations, posters, catalogs, artist's books, flyers, tickets, and record sleeves. These images were then used to execute a recadrage (re-framing) of Jean Dubuffet and his activities. Like a meticulous detective, Leguillon shows us how for each project, Dubuffet invented a new way of writing and composing text quite possibly by simply improvising.
