Présentation sur le site de l'artiste :
"« The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance » said ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle.
The inward space is the basis for ZONA.
Can we visualize the invisible?
ZONA emerged directly from faded memories and notes from a dream-diary. It’s a visual exploration on a mental and physical space - an attempt to represent the unconscious mind and the symbolic nature of archetypes.
Nuno Moreira's previous work, State of Mind, dealt with people absorbed and lost in their thoughts, in ZONA there's a necessity to delve deeper into the particular and see how we think and what are our fundamental fears and emotions.
The narrative of the book follows a live-performance and is somewhat similar to a dream experience – one feels both familiarity, intimacy and strangeness. It is however this combination of mystery and ambiguity that makes the pictures all the more engaging.
ZONA shows Moreira investigating in shadows and discovering new means by which to speak about thoughts and the realms of the psyche. The result is a sensuous, quiet and dark book, delivering images with a memorable cinematic quality.
Comprised of photographs and exclusive texts written by José Luís Peixoto, ZONA comes in a beautiful clothbound limited-edition of 300 copies."
Texts by José Luís Peixoto in Spanish, English and Japanese.

.Sold out. Presentation by Julia Borissova: " I am fond of the artist book form and have created about 14 books over the past 10 years. Most of the titles are sold out. Some time ago I decided to rethink some of my projects and realize them in a new, more concentrated form of zines. In almost half a year I managed to implement this idea and today I am...
Project presentation by Christopher Héry: "22:19 illustrates the wide range of emotions - fear, boredom, camaraderie, relief - that two young men have experienced during an intense 8-minute period. This book has been designed to slowly reveal the location, the story, and its ending, to the viewer in a cinematographic manner. Time is the key element here...
