Nicolas Vermot Petit-Outhenin and Petra Elena Kohle Pour les Oiseaux
Zurich, : Edition Fink. 2012
Synopsis: For their book Por Les Oiseaux, Petra Elena Köhle and Nicolas Vermot Petit-Outhenin collected stories, pairing them with photographs from various archives to create an artist's picturebook. The stories deal with major events in the lives of their narrators. Like photographs in a family album, they preserve moments, trying to reconstruct the past piece by piece. Readers will find the depicted events strangely familiar, but their stories come from distant, alien worlds.
Petra Köhle says: "These stories tell of the sadness that we feel when we look at our parents' wedding album." Nicolas Vermot: "Basically, it's always about death. This collection is about looking back on the long road to paradise. This project is an attempt to come to terms with the passing of time."
