Release and presentation of After Service, a selection of projects by Stéphane Barbier Bouvet, the artist’s non-self produced and distributed publication. The book gathers all the documentation of the different projects featured in La Loge’s current exhibition. Adopting the organisation of a stack or portfolio, the publication brings a meditative continuity to Barbier Bouvet’s multifaceted practice, both serving as and exceeding the format of the traditional exhibition catalog. While providing information on the contexts of apparition of a selection of objects developed by Barbier Bouvet over the years, this book also adopts the artist’s own attitude towards alternative modes of artistic labor, self-presentation, and publishing.
