Mark Gonzales & Benjamin Deberdt ‘Le Cercle’ Book
Australian publisher Izrock, bring us this new book by Mark Gonzales and Benjamin Deberdt. In 2009, Mark Gonzales revisited his project the ‘Circle Board’ – a sequence of nine skateboards joined end to end to form a complete loop. Benjamin Deberdt photographed Mark riding his creation before dawn in front of the Eiffel Tower producing enigmatic black and white prints. These photographs were then shipped to New York City and drawn directly upon by Mark in his idiosyncratic style. His familiar poetry and characters can be seen, as well as new themes inspired by the photos themselves and the city of Paris. The publication is a limited run artist book conceived by the artists and Izrock Pressings including a mix of 4-colour cover and 2 colour Risograph printing throughout. Printed by bespoke press Blood and Thunder in Sydney, Australia.
These artworks are currently on exhibition at La Gaîté Lyrique, Paris and the official launch and signing will be held there on Wednesday 22nd June.
