> Interested in the deployment of poetry in all its forms, Éditions du Noroît and Galerie Galerie are delighted with the realization of this project which blurs the boundaries between the materiality of the book object and the intimate universe of a personal reading. This work by Guillaume Saur, both playful and profound, allows a total immersion in the collections of eight poets selected by the artist, but also in eight visual and sound worlds that dialogue with each other.

Art of the image, of the breath, of the scope, poetry unfolds here through new layers, new networks of meaning. From words to earth, from earth to fire, from fire to bedroom, the work comes out of the book to better rebound on the porous walls of the essence, of the preliminary intention of the artists. Digital technology enriches the ways of speech and offers an unexpected sensory spark, like the thrill felt by the living body that discovers a resonance between its experience and that made possible by the artistic creation of others.

We invite you to let yourself be guided by the associations of words that challenge your intuition, your sensitivity: each immersive reading experience is unique and will lead you to new ways of conceiving the poem._
