BERGELT, Tatjana; and Marcel Moreau. Rhythmus le Rouge. [Helsinki]: 2012.

36 x 47 cm. 18 pp., including 6 color and black & white lithographic prints. Edition of six copies. Signed by the artist. Text in Moreau’s original French alongside the German translation.

Lithography printed on Japanese paper, with text leaves sewn collage-like, and housed in a red canvas wrapper with facsimile manuscript in an external pouch.

A collaboration between the Helsinki-based artist Tatjana Bergelt and Belgian writer Marcel Moreau with original lithograph figures by Bergelt and a poetic meditation on writing, the Muse, and la Femme by Moreau. Bergelt’s soft and ethereal nudes perfectly express Moreau’s rhythmic considerations of writing and love, and the alternating tensions that link them in his creative process.
