The plays of veil, whiteness and transparency of the images of Yveline Loiseur are transcribed in the delicate paper of the editorial object. The book experiences time, as does the photographer, as do photography. A time of patience, latency, slowing down the pace of life, as in the hospital.
The book designed by Bureau 205 comes as a folded sheet that the reader have to patiently cut open in order to see texts and images. The author Michel Poivert is retracing the parallel histories of art and medicine, inviting the reader to understand how “ethics and aesthetics [are likely to generate] a new photographic language”. The reader re-enacts the envelopment and unveiling of bodies, allowing the invisible to get revelead.
Alice Savoie’s Romain 20 (205TF, 2020) is used throughout.
