The main work
The house a with red roof pops up when you open the book, the house turns into a town, and the town turns into a large city as you turn the pages. A swallow flutters its wings and baby swallows move their beaks, asking for food when you shake the book. There is also a deep, wide sea and a magnificent forest in this small book. If you type a word from the book on the keyboard, or drag shapes inside the tablet screen, drawings that move and change appear.
What other books are we going to meet at this exhibition?
Artists Anouck Boisrobert and Louis Rigaud began their collaboration with the <Popville> dummy book, a pop-up book made at a workshop while they were attending École des arts décoratifs de Strasbourg, France. Currently, they are focusing on producing creative works in Paris, using a variety of techniques such as illustrations, pop-ups, graphic design animation and digital programming. <Oh!>, which made the pop-up book 『Oh ! Mon chapeau』 into a tablet application, received the Bologna Ragazzi Digital Award in the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.
The positive messages of these artists about nature and life appear more delightfully and powerfully through carefully-selected pop-ups. An ocean, forest, and urban environment that change with a human’s touch are expressed through the transformation of these images in their works. But the animals and humans inside the works live happily and joyfully in harmony.
This exhibition delivers ‘the beauty of nature’ through <Océano>, <Dans la forêt du paresseux>, <Une hirondelle·Deux crevettes·Trois fourmis> and ‘the joy of life’ through <Popville>, <Oh ! Mon chapeau>, <Liberté>, <Tip Tap, mon imagier interactif>. The exhibition not only includes 130 original works of sketches, paintings and sculptures, but other rare project artworks, personal works and media works of the two artists as well.
Visitors can experience and feel the artworks more deeply in a space with large sculptures, as if they were inside the book itself. Enjoy the artwork and create your own work through activity spaces and a ‘paper atelier’ in the exhibition hall.
Meet the fun world of Anouck Boisrobert and Louis Rigaud at 《Bonjour Pop-up》! These artists deliver joy to the world through their ‘fun books’ filled with unique ideas and experiences.
