Rose et Jaune, by Johanna Tagada
32 pages, colour, 5x8, first edition Nov. 2015, 100 numbered & signed copies
Photography, Painting, Poetry, Essay Bilingual, English & French Self-published via Poetic Pastel Press
Rose et Jaune is Johanna Tagada's latest hand folded and bound publication. Self-produced via her independent publication and collective project Poetic Pastel, the title introduces two of her recent and commonly rooted bodies of work; photographs and paintings carrying a narrative.
After their wedding, the artist and her husband went on for a small journey in Wales. An afternoon spent on a sandy beach, flowers, the romantic feeling of a young bride, the discovering of an island as an imaginary settler, are the trigger to both the paintings and dreamy analog imageries.
The publication is sensitive and delicate, including a hand painted page. The colours are soft, yellow, pink and tender pastels which are known to play an important role in Johanna's practice.
With an introduction by Celina Basra and a written contribution by Audrey Fondecave.
