Book Presentation + Exhibition


Artist book by Fanny Boucher

Book presentation: Thursday, October 13, 2016, 19h
Admission free


Tumuult warmly invites to the presentation of the artist book Ajpatan on Thursday, 13 October 2016 at 19h at Tumuult Space to discover Santiago Albert’s sensitive photography series of cofrades, spiritual Maya leaders from Guatemala. The Spanish photographer has been depicting indigenous traditions and celebrations in Guatemala since more than twenty years and his portraits mirror the trust that these men and women bestow upon him. One by one, they observe us, timeless, free infront of the lens.

Thirteen resulting portraits of Albert’s engagement with the cofrades are engraved and printed as original heliogravures by Fanny Boucher of Atelier Hélio’g, Paris. These are encased in a crafted box, lined with fabric woven by the local Maya community. This numbered and signed limited edition of thirteen is a unique interplay between photography and craftsmanship, to be discovered during the evening together with a selection of the helioengraved copper matrixes. At the invitation of the curators Lena Gudd and Antonin Pons Braley, helioengraver Fanny Boucher talks about the journey behind this unique artist book.

The exhibition cycle today, Maya society, taking place since May at Tumuult Space culminates on Thursday in the presentation of Ajpatan. The artist book will afterwards be available for consultation on appointment for another month.
