Prix Elysée: Nominees' Book 2016-2018
Published by the Musée de l’Elysée in partnership with Editions Photosynthèses in Arles, this book presents the projects of the eight nominees of the second edition of the Prix Elysée.
Isabelle Blanc & Olivier Hilaire, Elina Brotherus, Matthias Bruggmann, David Jiménez, Sofie Knijff, Jim Naughten, Emeka Okereke and Robert Zhao Renhui were selected by the museum from among 440 candidates from all over the world. They were given carte blanche for a new project, each one presenting his or her initial results in an artist’s book.
These books, presented together in a collection, invite the reader to delve into the privacy of a work in progress.
Published by the Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne and Éditions Photosynthèses, Arles, January 2017 in English and French.
Texts by Tatyana Franck, Pascal Hufschmid, Michel Parmigiani and presentation of the artists and their projects by Holly Roussell Perret-Gentil.
