Item description for Desir D'Une Femme Pour Un Homme, Poemes Futiles by Stephanie Cohen...
Description: "Dasir d'une femme pour un homme", po mes futiles can be read as an intimate conversation between a man and a woman in words and images. It is also a collection of poems and drawings that began, strangely enough, with a fashion story. In the hands of Mathias Augustyniak, one half of the design duo M/M Paris, drawing is a powerful and introspective tool, a link between hidden worlds. As a Creative Director, Augustyniak often employs drawing to bring out the hidden message in photography. In the case of "Libertine," a subliminally erotic fashion story by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Augustyniak's subconscious caught up with him, ultimately leading him on a 13-day journey of the mind and the soul. The sexually explicit yet playfully childlike drawings gathered here track the path of that journey--a very personal, though not solitary or self-centered experience. Augustyniak in turn passed the drawings on to the French novelist Staphanie Cohen and commissioned the set of accompanying poems. Published in both French and English, the spare, enigmatic, and highly charged verse stands as a body of work all its own. In other words, the drawings don't necessarily illustrate the poems, just as the poems don't necessarily clarify the drawings. The two are in conversation and sometimes even contradiction.
