A new idea of the book!
Editions Take5 propose unexpected collaborations between contemporary artists. Original photographs interact with unpublished texts, bold graphic design and sculptural traycases to transform the medium of the book into a whole new universe.
Editions Take5 commission original works by renowned contemporary artists, writers and designers from different parts of the world, who share a common sensitivity and are eager to collaborate on a specific project within the medium of the book.
The fruit of these collaborations is a surprising dialog between words and images, which, once closely intertwined with the most talented graphic designers and designers’ creations, appears as a work of art in itself published in very limited editions.
Original photographs interact with unpublished texts, bold graphic design and traycases created as sculptures and transform the book into a whole new universe.
More than twenty books have been published in the last twenty years, with many different artists such as John Armleder, Tony Oursler, Annette Messager or Ernesto Neto, writers such as Alberto Manguel, James Ellroy or Jean Philippe Toussaint, and designers such as Ettore Sottsass or Ron Arad.
For Art Genève 2017, éditions Take5 will present its last new books, a trilogy on Eros & Thanatos, exploring death and desire through the eyes of 20 artists and four writers.
