Aiko Hoshino - Photographs by...

Garo Aida is a  Japanese   photographer  known widely for his  erotic  work. In the 2000s, he photographed milder erotic pictures of very young models — something quite acceptable in Japan, but not viewed favorably in the west. These later works are not nude photographs, but images of models in swim wear, casual clothing, and school uniforms. Our book selection is available  online  and at both Éditions MR  store

Stanislas Rodanski - Writings

Discover the french surrealist poet Stanislas Rodanski : « O n réédite Rodanski, mais nul ne pourrait prétendre relire cet auteur dont l'écriture ne cesse de prendre la tangente quand on croit la saisir. Et pourtant nombre de ces pages ont valeur de talisman ou tiennent lieu de boussole dans la désorientation même qu'elles recèlent. Le rêve éveillé est l'ordinaire de Stanislas Rodanski, son pain blanc et son café noir, une de ses façons de lever les lièvres d'une littérature sans genre ni limites. Tout lecteur de Rodanski court à sa perte et c'est bien ainsi.  » Jean-Pierre Thibaudat -  Libération 9 décembre 1999 Our book selection is available  online  and at both Éditions MR  store locations .

Salutations distinguées, Jean-Michel Tixier - Book

A comics and illustration enthusiast since childhood, Jean-Michel Tixier is entirely self-taught. He began his career illustrating the record sleeves of his friends’ music label Record Makers before his work caught the eye of great name brands and major publications. Jean-Michel Tixier draws the inspiration for his irreverent universe from his favourite major French, Belgian and Dutch illustrators, (Joost Swarte, Serge Clerc, Hergé, Chaland…). With its clear lines, solid colors and wide cast of characters, his work without doubt belongs to the clear line movement. This small book contains a selection of his illustrations published for over a year. Its sober style of "Ligne Claire" is out of sync with the comic and absurd situations in which the characters find themselves. Our book selection is available  online  and at both Éditions MR  store locatio

Strange faces - Fellini’s castings

Fellini’s primary roles have often been endorsed by some of the best actors of his time. We know he directed Mastroianni as though he was his alter-ego, to the point “we never knew where Fellini ended and where Mastroianni started” - as Anouk Aimée recalls from the shooting of La Dolce Vita. Yet images Fellini’s films have left in our minds, long after we watched them, are the multiple strange faces of secondary roles, extras, unknown actors we have never heard of and never will. Fellini considered them as part of the  décor , spending a tremendous time to cast them. Some may say he invented street casting. When looking for the right face, he would publish a short add on local newspapers: “Frederico Fellini is ready to meet anyone who wants to see him”. Anyone: farmers, prostitutes, blue collars, magicians, beggars, bourgeoises, midgets, bankers. Hundreds of people would come to meet the film master in his home, leaving behind a photo that would then be meticulously classified. Over 10.000 pictures constituted Fellini’s casting library. How did he find his way through these pictures? Through over 200 categories of his own, among which: “interesting face”, “fat women with sensual face”, “repugnant head”, “voluptuous woman and a bit of a floozy ” or “the little queer”. We can’t help but wonder where he would have placed us... Our film selection is available  o nline  and at both Éditions MR  s tore locations .

Carlo Mollino - an avant-garde life

Mollino was certainly one of the strangest and most fascinating multi-faceted creator of the past century. Known as an architect, he raced in the 1954'  24 Hours of the Mans   in a car of his own design, developed alpine skiing techniques and designed planes. A number of polaroid pictures of past girlfriends, prostitutes and strippers were posthumously found in his home in Turin. What was it that drove this man, passionate for the pursuit of beauty and eroticism, known and hated for his erratic temperament and penchant for drugs? We know of his constant obsession with death that led to a house full of fetish objects distending his eternal presence. Both a creative genius in his era and our own, Mollino left with us the mantra to his freedom: “Everything is permissible as long as it is fantastic.” Our book selection is available  o nline  and at both Éditions MR  s tore locations .

William Burroughs - a selection

Few people have been so influential to both mainstream culture and counterculture as William Burroughs - the novelist was a defining force of the Beat Generation and the Postmodernist fervor of the 1960s. Along with Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac, Burroughs wrote The Naked Lunch in 1957. Considered too depraved for the American public at the fime, the novel was first published in Paris by Christian Bourgois in 1959 and remains Burroughs most esteemed work. In collaboration with Christian Bourgois Editeur, Éditions M.R is proud to present Burroughs' masterpieces  Interzone,  La Machine molle / Le Ticket qui explosa / Nova express,  Ultimes paroles  &   Lettres. Our book selection is available at both Éditions MR  store locations .

Allegorie Art Show 2014 - "Orange pattern"...

“A room decorated with safes. Here everything becomes suspicious. In the projected video loop, a cheerleader tirelessly tries to escape her pursuers while bystanders watch the scene unfold. Inevitably, something has happened. On a monitor, the scenes of cops, a black cat, a dark street and an old Mercedes flash across the screen. Everything is in place, although the audience seems to hear the sound of a police siren in the distance. While the outcome seems inevitable, the camera footage is ambiguous. Information on screen overlaps as shots of rocks merged into the end of a cornice. The audience will be forced to decipher and determine whether the safes are empty or what could possibly lie inside them” – Christophe Herreros This piece was featured at an Allegory Art Exhibit at Éditions M.R rue Madame, curated by Timothée Chaillou.

Heaven's Gate - Michael Cimino's...

Michael Cimino's masterpiece Following the overwhelming success of The Deer Hunter, Michael Cimino wrote and directed Heaven’s Gate, the American-Western masterpiece starring Christopher Walken and Isabelle Huppert. Released in 1980, the film was a commercial failure – to the point it bankrupted United Artists, the studio that produced it. However, Heaven’s Gate today is appreciated as a seminole film in the genre and a brilliant epic. In collaboration with Carlotta Films, Melindagloss held a premiere at Beaubourg with featured speakers Michael Cimino and Isabelle Huppert. Over three hundred guests attended to view the film in its original long-form version. Our film selection is available  o nline  and at both Éditions MR  s tore locations . Many thanks to Michael Cimino, Isabelle Huppert, Carlotta Films, Thomas Erber and Laurent Fetis.
