A book created at HEAD-Genève’s micro-publishing workshop, between 2018-2019.
Bookbinding: Charles Duch, Au Bon Relieur, Vernier (Switzerland).

A series of sixteen grey photographs, taken with a digital camera over the course of one afternoon, in places generally exempt of human presence, verging on the illegal, near a small village called Klingnau, in Aargau (Switzerland).
There are many fields, a few motorways and national highways running through the canton, small towns or hamlets spread out not far from the river Aare, and the industries that have cropped up all along it.
These photographs have never been exhibited, only published in a small thirty page book with the same name as the village in which they were taken. The book exists in thirty copies, has been presented at a few book fairs in Switzerland and in France, and was part of an installation called All in.
The beginning of the story (translated from German) reads:
“Aargau is grey. Aargau is almost always grey.“

“A triple collaboration between Arles, Geneva and Paris, KILOMETRES is a journal, a sort of research space linking three approaches: the curatorial, the theoretical and the visual. Proceeding by surveys, investigations, deconstructions, and appropriations, its authors and artists capture the uses, provisions and economy of collections. The physical and conceptual displacement of these archives gives rise to an experimental confrontation offering a new point of view on plural works, investigating the issues of exchange and address.“
