Text: Charles Baudelaire
Join us on Thursday, December 2nd for the launch of Fleurs du Mal by Antoine d’Agata X Charles Baudelaire.
Bigaignon Gallery and The Eyes are pleased to invite you to a reading of Charles Baudelaire’s poems on Thursday 2 December from 7pm to 9pm, followed by a meeting and signing with Antoine d’Agata on the occasion of the release of Antoine D’Agata’s “Fleurs du Mal”.
The book is based on the original uncensored edition of Baudelaire’s collection from 1857, accompanied by d’Agata’s engraved prints. Present and past are superimposed. Like a game of transparency presented by the frame of an image on the cover. In Fleurs du Mal, Baudelaire is a flâneur, a spectator of the world around him, of urban transformations, while d’Agata embodies photography, life and reappropriates the space of the city through gesture.
