Summer Residency

New Publication

Yto Barrada’s Sewing Exercises (threadless drawing on paper) lists exercises given to apprentice seamstresses in Tangier, designed to teach them how to write lines on a machine before moving on to work on fabric. These lessons recall Friedrich Fröbel’s educational toys as much as — after the artist’s negative inversion – Frank Stella’s Black Paintings (1958−60), shifting their documentary nature to a more ambiguous status. But while Fröbel’s pedagogy is intended to develop autonomy and foster emancipation, what sometimes awaits these young apprentices is more the low-cost labor market, dominated by the large ready-to-wear groups that have relocated their factories to Morocco.

We publish these exercises in the form of posters, a recurring practice of Yto Barrada, winner of the 2022 Queen Sonja Print Award , which rewards the artist for the whole of her printed work.

Practical information:

10 folded posters, open format 46 x 65 cm
Offset printing on Munken Lynx 90g (posters)
and screen printing on Papago Rose 240g (cover)

Limited edition of 120 copies numbered and signed by the artist

La Marelle Award winner

The South Korean illustrator and cartoonist Saehan Parc is the winner of the 2022 call for projects for a youth residency proposed by La Marelle and Fotokino, with the financial support of the Drac Provence-Alpes-Côté d’Azur.

Currently based in Strasbourg, Saehan Parc was born in 1989 in Siheung, South Korea. During her studies, she was part of the fan club of the Starcraft champion of her high school. Without any link, but more relevant, she heard about the Arts Décos of Strasbourg and its brilliant Illustration section during her studies at the Animation High School of Seoul. She then decided to come to France, enrolled in college, learned French, and finally landed a place in the school of her dreams. With her valiant classmates Manon Debaye, André Derainne and others, she takes part in the fabulous adventure of the magazine Mökki and publishes many fanzines. Papa Ballon is her first book (éditions 2024, label jeunesse 4048).
