Made in Town
On the occasion of the launch of the inaugural issue of Comment Section, Made in Town invites the young Parisian publishing house Holoholo to presente the genesis of this project and its particular principles – writing, graphic design, and publishing – put in place by this artistic collective for the conception and production of these periodical reviews.
Comment Section is a collection of writings about writing, a space for commentary based on a double-protocol that strictly separates writing and layout. In the style of a conversation, the text content is built through games of rebound between different contributors.
The inaugural issue puts into conversation the writing of Julien Monnerie, Ted Perez, Emmanuel Régniez, Signe Ross, Jamie Stevenson, Louise Sartor, Maesiaen Marwan and Naoki Sutter-Shudo around subjects as diverse as feminism, techno-povera, mesmerizing romances and medieval sexual cults.
For the layout and printing of the review in the form of a fold-out poster, the publishing house invited the intervention of the graphic design duo Sandra Valode and Mathile Dalibard for the front and the drawing machine of trio Grichka, Elsa, Martin for the reverse.
Each example is unique, combining the possibilities of the digital with the questions of manual reproduction by a hand-controlled tool.
Holoholo is an independent publishing house founded in 2012 by Kim Farkas and Naoki Sutter-Shudo as a parallel to their artistic activities. Their editorial program derives from close partnerships involving artists, authors, designers, spaces and artisans around a common objective: the understanding of the nature of the book, at times suggestive space, at times an object of demonstration.
Marie-Ange Guilleminot is a French visual artist who lives and works in Paris. Her artistic practice is framed as a voyage. In perpetual motion and attentive to the techniques of the countries and cultures that she visits, each new project is a pretext for exploring unexpected skills and building a rapport between her work and new techniques.
Made in Town presents Inventaire (inventer + faire), a selection of products reflecting the particular know-how of ateliers all around the world.
In order to promote the know-how and the characteristics of La Rochère glass factory, located in Passavant-la-Rochère in the French department of Haute-Saône, Made in Town conducted a series of four short videos shot in the heart of the company's workshops.
