A meeting with the author of Hapax (L.L. de Mars, éd. The Hoochie Coochie, 2013), interrogating the working method and overall philosophy behind the creative process, and the reflections on editing in general.
What is the motor for motivation, how does the interaction with the readers work, how does he treat (in)accessibility? History, aesthetics, technique and skill, all these factors play roles in the conception of the project. Which choises present themselves and how do they reflect the intrinsic value of the drawing process, the use of language and quotations, the insertion into the original plate and finally, into a book?

Les Vaporellas play Bubble Punk (according to their favorite expression): "A mix between The Ramones and Lady Gaga" summons it up quite well. Though serious, the humor in their rock-pop both sparkles and stings. The heat of the live performanceis guaranteed to penetrate to your deepest fibers and makes for of an unbridled evening of enjoyment.
23/09 - 14u - Presentation ELI vzw, l'atelier du Toner & Crack ! festival
14u 30: Conference in Italian, translated to French : Valério Bindi, founder of Crack! Festival "Aisthesis et auto-édition underground " - 1h
The term Aisthesis concerns the sensitive plot of experience in which pieces of art are produced. It has nothing to do with form, with beauty, but with material conditions and perception. It constitutes a regime that can take in its interior any form, even the furthest from the art, or those related with the beauty criteria. The « Pop Underground » originates, from the visual point of view, from the paintings on the freak caravans that roamed America, the sideshow, and then on the hotrods, those cars, often stolen, modified to make them dart into more or less regular races. The underground imaginary develops in connection with these two elements that will characterize it from then on: the spectacle of deformity, the human oddities, and the nomadic essence, irregular bodies and more or less voluntarily modified and inexpugnable.
This decisive inability to normal life, to work, to the time of production is now the basis of hundreds of fanzines with blinding colors and distorted signs that nomadically populate the submerged and underground world.
A vision of the active and lateral present that appears from every corner of the planet, which abandons the project to flow in the autonomous production process.
A path that disables the dynamics of doing to free Aisthesis, contemplation, and generate dimensions of Art and Politics.
