« Avec ce qui reste », French for « With what is left » is the publication ideated by Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck, designed by Alyssia Lou, overviewed by Thierry Chancogne, including a text by Elein Fleiss, printed in an educational space employing the Risograph technique, and hand-bound by Florence Aknin, Pauline Simonet, students and friends from Antwerp, on the occasion of the exhibition « Avec ce qui reste » at Ravisius Textor.
« What is left » in times of a global pandemic, with its particularly virulent and dangerous variant in the country where Johanna resides, takes on peculiar meaning.
Something dramatic unfolds against a background of ecological bankruptcy that Johanna nevertheless persists in dealing with by ways of gentleness and attention to things, to beings, to the living in all their forms. By collecting presences, movements, traces. By constructing fragile images and delicate installations as so many testimonies and persistence of the world.
