Designed to emphasize the spirit of continuity between the past and the present, this exhibition and publication project highlights the coherence of an artistic practice that navigates between several mediums and disciplines, always with the objective of achieving complete technical mastery. Divided into five sections beginning with the interrogative adverb "how" - How to see in space, How to draw a line, How to build a staircase, How to know a place, How to make an image of things as they happen to be - each booklet of the publication is wrapped with silkscreen prints produced by the artist.
Guillaume Adjutor Provost
Guillaume Adjutor Provost has been developing for nearly ten years a work oriented towards the development of spaces of hospitality and collaboration with a community of peers, often from the performance like him, but also with actors coming from non artistic backgrounds and from which stories need to be told. This space of hospitality materializes here in the discursive and polyphonic form of the book, which becomes a kind of extension of the eld of conversation put in place by the artistic practice of Provost. Conceived by the artist himself as a platform for invitations, discussions and exchanges, this book brings together four essays that form as many points of entry into the work.
