Tristes Tropiques: Illustrations hors texte

In collaboration with Ronald van Tienhoven.

An artist's book consisting of a facsimile of the photographic supplement of the book Tristes Tropiques (1955) by the French cultural anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss.
His photographs of Brazilian tribes were recreated together with a group of inhabitants from Beetsterzwaag, a village in the region of Frysia (NL).

Using this 'counter exploration' through space and time, the artists emphasize the continuity of human expression and cultural exchange. Publication realized thanks to the generous support of the Mondriaan Fonds.
