Haris Epaminonda

Exhibition Catalogue / Artist Book

Philippe Artières, Chris Sharp, Aurélie Verdier

The Frac Île-de-France is publishing a book with BOM DIA BOA TARDE BOA NOITE in close collaboration with the Cypriot artist Haris Epaminonda and the Berlin designers Santiago da Silva and Simon Steinberger.

This publication recounts and translates the experience of the exhibition VOL. XVI presented at Le Plateau in 2015 for which the artist had created a global environment. Through a series of parallel actions the whole exhibition was connecting the interior and exterior with the presence of an old Japanese man “living” in the exhibition and with two young women dressed in traditional Japanese costumes who were walking in the des Buttes-Chaumont Park in Paris.

This book concentrates the different perspectives of the artist’s work, where the idea of travel, of displacement – in time and space – offers a unique spatial experience combined with the cinematographic dimension included in the exhibition.

At the same time, are gathered the critical texts of Philippe Artières (Historian and Research Director CNRS, EHESS), Chris Sharp (Independent art critic) and Aurélie Verdier (curator in Musée national d’art moderne, MNAM-CCI, Centre Pompidou).
