Festin - Anne Brugni & McCloud ZicMuse - 15 x 20 cm - 44 pages - Hardback book - June 2021 - €15
This final Feast is the last of a trilogy of contemplative picture
books about nature and the elements. It explores the earth as a provider of nourishment. Through a series of tiny events, Feast shows how living beings and matter interact. The transformation of wheat into bread is described in detail, right down to the chemistry of the bacteriological elements. Fermentation, at the heart of the book, allows to reflect on the organic aspect of the process. But how do you evoke sounds and smells through images? Anne Brugni uses airbrushing, a new technique to add to her repertoire.
After graduating from the Ecole d’Arts Appliqués in Lyon, ANNE BRUGNI spent several years working on a collective textile printing project. She then contributed to the fanzine Cuistax before fouding L’Hötel Rustique with McCloud Zicmuse, a bed and breakfast, letterpress printer, publishing house and gallery. Her first book, Hello, brought her recognition in the drawing world and she exhibited her work in France, Belgium and China. She also organises workshops at the Pompidou Centre in Paris and contributes to the web-series Mon oeil.
After travelling around Europe, MCCLOUD ZICMUSE, an American musician, decided to settle down in Brussels, where he enjoys the local folklore. He is a whimsical songwriter and creates unique mixtures of poetry, nonsense and trivial thoughts.
