Divagation - Sur les pas de Bashō (*signed*)

@ Sluban, Klavdij



.One copy available.

Presentation on the Académie des Beaux-Arts website
(where the series was on display in the Fall 2016) :

"Divagation, sur les pas de Bashô est un parcours poétique inspiré par les voyages entrepris par Matsuo Bashô au XVIIe siècle à travers le Japon féodal. Klavdij Sluban a transcrit photographiquement le voyage initiatique de Bashō, non d’un point de vue documentaire mais sensible, en transcrivant l’essence poétique de chaque étape.

Il s'est imprégné du Japon, de sa culture et livre ici un voyage intime et intérieur, nous donnant à voir « son » Japon sous une forme poétique de l'écriture photographique. Sa récente pérégrination puise sa source dans les textes de Matsuo Bashō et principalement dans son œuvre majeure, véritable carnet de voyage initiatique à travers le Japon : La Sente étroite du Bout-du Monde.

Ce projet au long cours s'inscrit dans la continuité des cycles précédents qu'il a entrepris - Balkans, Russie, mer Baltique, îles Kerguelen, les îles de la Caraïbe, Amérique centrale... voyages constituants qui tous ont donné lieu à une production photographique. Ce projet a été réalisé dans le cadre d'une résidence à la Villa Kujoyama, antenne de l'Institut français du Japon."

This book is composed of 3 separate booklets inserted in a partial « corner » slipcase. Each copy is signed and numbered on the back of the slipcase.

The photographs have to be looked at in landscape orientation, they are all embossed in a texture paper. In each booklet, the series of images is « embraced » in a sheet of silk paper. Several short texts or haikus by Bashō (in French only) are inserted between some of the images.

We are offering here the « trade » edition of 210 copies of this book (300 copies all versions included). Each booklet is a softcover with flaps and includes 24 pages.
