Raphaël Lecoquierre – Nūbēs
The first publication dedicated to the artist Raphaël Lecoquierre, Nūbēs documents the eponymous series begun in 2010 following the discovery of photographs washed up on the shore of the North Sea. The works in this corpus are produced through a unique process using a vast set of vernacular analog photographs. The images of family, landscapes or other instruments of memory gleaned and accumulated by the artist are dissolved in order to have their coloured substance extracted. The pigments taken are incorporated into Venetian stucco and used as raw material for the creation of patterns which, freed from their figurative referents, transcend memories and representations to create the emergence of nebulous landscapes. Designed and published as part of the Tills exhibition at Casino Luxembourg, the book presents a set of paintings, sculptures and in-situ installations, highlighting facets of their production process, never before revealed.
