ANNE MARIE JUGNET + ALAIN CLAIRET: DECRIRE LE RESTE (Anne Marie Jugnet + Alain Clairet: Describing the Rest). Casino Luxembourg-Forum d'art contemporain, Luxembourg, 2008. Organized and published in association with Galerie Serge Le Borgne, Paris. 248 pp. with numerous col. ills. 26 x 21 cm. ISBN 9782919893744 Bilingual in French and English.
This is the first comprehensive monographic retrospective of Anne Marie Jugnet + Alain Clairet. Using a wide range of media, the work of this artist couple investigates and questions the status of images. Among their series of works are paintings of the snow of TV screens, sculptures of clouds, photographs of the sky, painterly reproductions of desert and ocean maps, and literary or poetic neon signs. In most cases, their practice draws on actual yet hardly perceptible physical phenomena. Jugnet and Clairet direct their attention to the fringes of the image, the periphery, where information is at best scarce. Their analysis consistently triggers a reflection on the conditions of the emergence of images: "Our paintings deal with images. Our photographs deal with painting!" After they have been subjected to various technical treatments (photography, computer-manipulation, etc.), the topics addressed in their works -- the void, disappearance, and dematerialization -- take shape and become palpable. Volume is in very good condition.
