"The book questions the value of the contemporary image, using strategies of détournement and deconstruction to form complex visual ensemble, based on [Maya Rochat's photographs].
Interweaving these images with the print technology, she creates multi-fold narratives. The book is printed making use of various print technologies – Offset, stencil print and silkscreen – that overlaps on the page, producing a unique materiality.
Conceived in layers, the works evolve in the expanded fields of photography, collage and painting, blurring the borders between analogic, manual and digital. It invites the spectator into an organic universe, exploring emotional and conceptual readings.
For their third editorial project together, Maya Rochat and Delphine Bedel are exploring further the haptic relation between print and photography, in a cutting-edge publishing experiment."
