It was in Sète, in 2014, in the context of residence workshops, that La Vague first encountered plastician Jean Denant, who had produced La Mediterranée et ses mappemondes (“The Mediterranean and its Maps), hammered out of construction materials. The artist and company began a series of regular exchanges based on artistic affinities – architecture, materials, concepts – which in turn led to a joint project. Jean Denant was seeking to construct an image that would represent his work. Denant had exhibited at Parisian galleries (Anne de Villepoix) and at the most prestigious art fairs (FIAC, Art Paris, Art Brussels); he had set up installations in art centres and his work had entered famous collections. This high-end position and the need to meet the artist’s specific requirements formed the starting-point for a collaboration with La Vague on the creation of his first monograph, published by Analogues of Arles, a company well-known for its editorial commitment and the quality of its contents.

Jean Denant wanted a book in his own image, both powerful and subtle, which would contain his finest works and images and original text. With its expertise in graphics and art direction and its knowledge of contemporary art, La Vague produced a well-structured project with carefully selected, different yet complementary works, connected in the service of a consistent whole which aimed to be timeless.
