Reference monograph / catalogue raisonné of 650 works, with an essay by Guillaume Désanges, a set of short texts by Elisabeth Wetterwald, a conversation between the artist and Céleste Olalquiaga, and a book of images from Pierre Ardouvin and Guillaume Désanges' archives.
Pierre Ardouvin (born 1955 in Crest, lives and works in Montreuil, France) captures the archetypes of our culture to create ambivalent, both playful and disturbing works (installations, photographs, drawings) that oscillate between melancholy, humor and poetry.
