Patrick Corillon - Les Pensées Poissons

Collection Memento

ISBN: 9782873172657 (PB - F)

For Patrick Corillon, the space of a book is a place for wandering, a pretext for travelling and for novelistic peregrinations. It is a land for eyes to scan, through the graphics, the pace measured by the pages, and is also a space for identification, organised along the lines of the geographic maps we love to use, like Novalis, to dream of the landscape. Patrick Corillon's book is devoted to the movements of thoughts. The left-hand pages have illustrations of the physical structures of our forms of thought; the pages to the right of this literarily ordered thought. The thoughts are about landscape, in the romantic sense of the term, i.e. the landscape as another self. The book's 72 pages include a 10-page introduction with close-ups of neurones in action in the movement of thought. The main body of the book contains around fifty short texts by the artist. Patrick Corillon lives and works in Paris and Liège; he is represented by the Galerie In Situ (Paris). An exhibition of his work was held at Documenta IX in 1992, at the biennials of Sao Paulo in 1994, Lyon in 1995 and Sydney in 2002. His work has been presented at the Tate Gallery and the Royal College of Art (London), at the Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels and Charleroi, at the Fondation De Appel and the Witte de Witt in the Netherlands, at the Gulbenkian Foundation (Lisbon), as well as in a number of galleries. His works can be found in public collections at the Centre Pompidou, the FNAC, the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations, the FRAC Pays de Loire, PACA, Bourgogne, Languedoc-Roussillon, Limousin, Alsace, Picardie and elsewhere in France; at the Muhka (Antwerp), Smak (Ghent), the Musée d'Ixelles and the French Community of Belgium.
