MOI AUSSI. 2012.


Paris: Editions 591, 2012
23.5 x 20cm, unpaginated. Many pages are bound uncut to hide images behind the binding. First edition of this artist’s book which is beautifully bound in a multicoloured ribboned folder which has a red flock card. Calle explains the book: ““Since 1980, I kept my birthday presents and I continued this rite during fourteen consecutive years. That is to say, almost like during the two seven-year terms of François Mitterrand’s presidency. François Mitterrand created the “Musée du Septennat” in 1986 to exhibit the presents he received as a President during his two seven-year terms (1981-1995). Thus, fourteen years. Having a year lead, I thought to title this book “Lui Aussi”. But due to his office and the number of our respective presents – about 318 for me, and about 4700 objects and 18000 books for him, I inverted the order. The choice of the photographed presents in this book is not related to their symbolic importance, or to their value, or to François Mitterrand’s preferences.They are a personal selection.”. This is one of the unsigned edition in VG+ condition. In original transparent plastic bag with red flock bookmark and publisher’s promotional sheet.
