PFC#6 : “Indie Americans” in Toulouse, FR ; with Melissa Mendes, Charles Forsman and Noah Van Sciver

Our friends from the Brussels editorial structure L’Employé du Moi are moving part of the beautiful exhibition they proposed on the occasion of Cultures Maison.
A portion of “Indie Americans” will therefore be coming to Toulouse: from Tuesday, the original plates of Melissa Mendes, Noah Van Sciver and Charles Forsman will be on display at the Ombres Blanches Bookstore and at Café L’Impro. A devernissage/dedication will take place on Tuesday 29 January 2019 in Toulouse, to close this chapter celebrating Franco-American-Belgian friendship.  🙂
If you don’t have the opportunity to meet Noah in Angouleme (he is invited to Pierre Feuille Ciseaux #6, as a reminder), it will be time to do so!

Indie Americans a Toulouse - 2018-2019

Nous sommes les gens de qui nous parlons : l’art d’Emmanuel Guibert • Part. 8 (last part) : Passage Alan Cope.

“Nous sommes les gens de qui nous parlons” is a large year-long celebration of Emmanuel Guibert’s work, complete with many exhibitions, workshops, meets, talks, concerts and many surprises to come from september 2017 to june 2018 on the little Île de Ré, where he met Alan Cope (who’s at the very subject of several books that Emmanuel did) in 1994.

Last saturday was the inauguration of the brand new Passage Alan Cope in Saint-Martin-de-Ré, where Alan lived the last twenty-five years of his rich life.
Of course, Emmanuel Guibert was there, as was most of the nice Cope family ; Julia Dumoulin-Rulié and Christelle Rivalland from the Musée Ernest Cognacq ; Patrice Déchelette, mayor of Saint-Martin ; delegation from L’Association, publisher of the Alan books ; and so much more people we would like to thanks.

A conversation with Aidan Koch on du9.org

On a very regular basis, those super nice folks at du9.org give us some news of the great moments we all lived all together by the past, during our Pierre Feuille Ciseaux (“PFC”) classic events.

This very week, du9 share with us some long interview with Aidan Koch, who was part of the PFC5 residency in Minneapolis during the 2015 summer. Aidan is a brilliant artist who is using comics (and not only) to express herself and tell things with a real refreshing and very unique twist. As Xavier Guilbert says :

“With one foot in comics and the other in contemporary art, Aidan Koch is definitely a polymorphic artist who draws, sculpts, works on fabric, publishes littles books and makes installations. In every one of her projects, she works with fragile things, connects fragments, suggests impressions — building with every stroke a narrative that is both elegant and cristalline.”

You can read the whole thing online, which is right here.

Marc Bell, in 2013.

Thanks again Xavier !

Bye Alvin.

Alvin Buenaventura was one of the most exciting publishers in the very field we like to dig in.
He leaves plenty of people with an infinite sadness but also a whole, full range of incredible books, could it be through the various and great ones he published within his Buenaventura Press inprint, or through his new printing adventure, Pigeon Press.
He patiently shared with us the artwork of such talents as Gary Panter, Daniel Clowes, Julie Doucet, Chris Ware, Matt Furie, Johnny Ryan, Phil Elverum, Vanessa Davis, Paul Hornschemeier, Anders Nilsen, Lisa Hanawalt, Adrian Tomine, Helge Reumann & Xavier Robel, Tom Gauld, Ron Rege Jr and so on, and of course the production of such unforgettable books as (amongst others !) the #7 of Sammy Harkham’s Kramer’s Ergot anthology back in the days, or the very very last Daniel Clowes or Charles Burns productions… Just a few examples…

"Elvis Road" cover detail

At ChiFouMi, there’s plenty, plenty of the people we worked/work with told us how great he was as a publisher, as an influence. And for the very few times we shared with him, he left us with the impression that he was just an extra nice guy, too.

Thanks for the books, thanks for the art, thanks for all, Alvin.
We’ll miss you.

Some news from The Faceless Goat.

Two weeks ago, we had the chance to get both creators Anders Nilsen and Marc Bell at the opening of our new exhibition in Besançon, “The Faceless Goat”.
In two different places, this art show is all about what was last summer’s residency that ChiFouMi organised with the precious help from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. And because this Pierre Feuille Ciseaux residency is about creation, we did our best ot show many of the various things hanging on the wall.
Hope you’ll like it !
