NEUF VELTES REMPLISSENT UN QUARTAUT
An over-sized book of photographs by Jonas Marguet & Matthieu Lavanchy & winner of the Swiss Federal Design Award.
In this book, photographers Jonas Marguet and Matthieu Lavanchy playfully subvert the classical photographic still life genre after they were approached to create a work based on associations from the Swiss stage play ‘Obése’.
In response to the nature of the work and bound only by economical restrictions, it was decided that the book and its contents be reproduced as large as possible.
The destabilising series of images are presented in a playful oversized format, while colours and typefaces extend the idiosyncratic and borderline grotesque nature of the imagery. The artists were awarded the Swiss Federal Design Award for this project.
With photographers Matthieu Lavanchy & Jonas Marguet
