Every year, cneai= organises Salon Light at the Point Ephémère in Paris; a salon dedicated to micro-edition and artists’ publications. cneai=, through Salon Light, supports and promotes the dissemination of experimental publishers whose work covers the field of art and its frontiers: social sciences, graphic design, sound, poetry…
Forward-thinking, prosperous and audacious, the editorial approach of the participants in Salon Light reflects a desire to entirely rethink the printed object and its production. Limited editions and a real desire to make visible emergent and established artists: the establishment of a new definition of publishing lies at the core of the concerns of Salon Light #8.
Cneai (center of edition and of printed art), aware of the monotony that characterises the set «table+chair+publisher», innovates and proposes a new model of presentation of publications, that aims to transform the salon into an exhibition space dedicated to editorial practices. Each editor is invited to put together a display of their most recent editions. The architects Elisabeth Lemercier and Philippe Bona conceive a device composed of holsters and drawers and made of magnetic steel, which is proposed as an exhibition display. (video)
