Nathalie Guiot, director of the Cinquième Couleur print shop in Paris, invited us to work on this challenge of the artist Manuel Mérida, in the context of an exhibition organised by the Espace Meyer Zafra in Paris.
In his works, Manuel Mérida experiments with organic materials, and his inspiration is motivated by the succession of constructions and deconstructions that time gives us.
The singularity of the project is the cover. The artist has worked the colour pigments in a specific dosage, which has been deposited on the cover, reminding us of a fluid, a kind of “vision from the fishbowl”. The teamwork of the technical office of Nexe Impressions and the Artmoon workshop has achieved the objective.
A challenge in which we have suffered and enjoyed in equal parts, but as always when the result is successful, it has been worth it.
We always enjoy exploring the limits of our craft, trying to go beyond what is conventional, to produce unique and original pieces and thus help our clients and collaborators to achieve the objectives of such special projects.
