JULES SAVOIE
Lexique à l’usage d’une feuille


Lexique à l'usage d'une feuille questions the possible links between a word, its metaphorical definition and a physical expression. The publication shows a selection of scanned pictures representing the artists’ interventions on sheets of paper. Each gesture is associated with a verb representing the action, and each action is associated with the image of its digitized result.

Words, chosen for their polysemy, creates poetical associations where Jules Savoie’s performances on a basic material became symbols to describe his approach to feelings and social interactions. The images of the gestures and their following poems are selected and categorized in alphabetical order to form a kind of glossary.

Indexing is here a protocol for expressing a special attitude with relationships using ordinary means. Photocopied sheets of paper represent allegories of acts with which we can identify, either as sender subject or receiver subject, in a relational experience.

Lexique à l’usage d’une feuille paints in eighty pages a poetic and materialist portrait of Jules Savoie’s practice, showing us how present the mathematical notion of echo and its paradoxes are in the artist’s works.
