« Every day is Saturday : portraits anglais » Tom Wood
Tom Wood or Photie Man photographs everyday life, roaming the streets of his hometown. He paints the portrait of Liverpool and its people, caught on the spot on the top deck of a bus, on the ferry, in the markets or at a nightclub. Tom Wood’s photographs are not edited, not cropped. What is available to see is there, before us. A compulsive gesture, an incisive gaze, the peril of the contact sheet that can tell a story or just as easily miss it. So, we should be as generous as the artist who gives all that he can. Without ulterior motives, Cahiers #4 mix up the gazes and undertake a collective reading of this Liverpudlian universe.
Authors: Yasmine Chemali, François Cheval, David Peace, John Peel, Alexis Tadié, Leïla Vignal.

« Ce qui nous arrive ici, en plein visage » Catherine De Clippel + Marie Baronnet
A barrier stands at the border between the United States and Mexico, a sinister defensive wall known to all. It alone embodies all walls, all refusals of the other. Elsewhere, in Fon and Ewhe countries, other markers stand in the form of earth sculptures posed directly on the ground. Protuberances that separate the living from the spirits. Between Marie Baronnet’s photographs, taken at the Mexican border, and those of Catherine De Clippel, taken in West Africa, a surprising relationship emerges. Both capture what happens between that which closes and that which opens, a beyond that sparks our (very human) curiosity. We must always understand what is hidden, what is on the other side.
Authors: François Cheval, Jean-Paul Colleyn, Jérôme Esnouf

Legends, the Living Art of Risqué
Marie Baronnet goes back in time, back to the origins of a living art: striptease, by meeting its icons. From the “strip joint”, the first inspiration of this series, to the “Burlesque”, she explores with these women the history of striptease from Roosevelt to Reagan, from the Mafia to the Vietnam war, as striptease is part of the American heritage just like blues and rock’n’roll.

“I made these pictures exactly as if I was taking pictures in Wilkes-Barre, my hometown. I was led only by what I could see on the street. Of course, the extreme newness of this giant country, Mexico, was shocking to me. There really is surrealism in the air.”
Authors: Mark Cohen et Octavio Paz

FORMcard is a handy, pocket sized card of meltable bio-plastic. Simply drop it in a cup of hot water to make little solutions to everyday problems. When it’s cool it’s really strong like nylon, so you can make solid durable solutions with it, and then you can reheat it again and again to adapt, change and reuse it. Because it’s a convenient card size, you can keep one in your pocket, wallet, kitchen drawer or tool box so that it’s there whenever and wherever it’s needed. A great benefit is that when it’s very hot, it sticks to some other plastics, so you can actually use it to instantly fix say…. a favourite plastic shovel when you are on holiday, or a broken fridge drawer. It’s also bio-degradable, so that at the end of it’s life it can be composted.
