Presentation of the Seasons Series by Libraryman :
"Seasons Series is a quarterly book series in which a unified curated category of artists cumulate under one and the same provision, however with changing perceptions from each artist’s particulate frame of reference. Each edition distinguishes itself through the selection of alternating artists and its varied content, however, its size, page count and all-in-one technical designs are invariable. The first 25 copies of each publication come as a special edition, each containing a signed print.
Drawing inspiration from South Korean film director Kim Ki-duk’s majestic filmmaking of Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring, where the protagonist, portrayed by various actors throughout each season, is left by a parental figure at an isolated lake and its floating monastery. Although the film specifically focuses its narrative on the shifting nature of the seasons and further influencing the protagonist’s fosterage, Seasons Series center on its simple, yet profound ideas, its spirituality and human passions, regardless of season — where the works can be perceived differently, depending on the season.
We hereby continue the book series with new works by Katrien De Blauwer (b. 1969, Belgian)."
NB : The first book from the Seasons Series (Mizugi by Osamu Yokonami) will be available shortly therough L'Ascenseur Végétal.
