In 2011 I met artist Martine Rastello at The Marseille Artist Bookfair.
We decided to collaborate on a book which would be based on the subject of Sardines, as they have been important mythically and historically in Marseille.
The main book is a unique book-object. It is made of posted envelopes showing our individual developments on the theme. These originals are very mixed media! They include gyotoku - a Japanese method of printing a real fish, painting, collage, drawing and photography.
The mini-books are processed as digital images and packaged in a (clean!) sardine tin, enclosed in a slipcase decorated with fishing nets.
