This delicately published book of 592 pages, introduced with essays and commentary by Damien Sausset and Lóránd Hegyi, reveals recent work of ARPAÏS du bois through her drawings and writings. This bundle of works on paper reflects in a sharp and intense way on our society, the world we live in, and on all of our connections and disconnections that are related to our searching for a proper positioning within the given systems.
By showing all the backs of the drawings, the artist seems to guide us to the core of the making-process, simultaneously blurring our vision of the actual works. Books where the relationship between content and form is so intelligently thought out and designed are rare. Tout droit vers la fin en sifflotant is one of these.
