Hubert Duprat Catalogue

14 Apr

Nadine Kessler – who made the beautiful book-design for The Long Weekend in Alice Springs recently designed this art catalogue for the French Artist Hubert Duprat who has something of a retrospective exhibition at MONA in Hobart. The first major exhibition in the English-Speaking world, outside of the French speaking world. It’s an exsquisite book – incredibly refined and despite its restraint and its focus on letting the art speak – actually has quite a character about it. I think it really sings beautifully well with its content. Check it out if you get the chance, its at the MONA shop.

I’m forever grateful to Mona for having this opportunity to practise my long-forgotten French and also for having been given the job to design Hubert Duprat’s exhibition catalogue. Probably one of the most comprehensive catalogues about the work of this quite shy and witty French artist. Check out the exhibition here : Mona … Check out the catalogue here :

Sleuth: The Delegation
Joshua Santospirito

it would seem that sometime in the last 250 years the fire-farming just stopped. The humans no longer see themselves in the landscape, and consequently they no longer care for the trees, the dirt, the spirit. Now the giants have awoken. These strange and large visitors have come to Canberra to discuss a situation: Australian spirituality is all over the shop! The continent’s psyche appears to be diversifying … this mightn’t be such a good thing.

I don’t reckon this is such a good thing.
And where is Amos? Is he always late for every meeting!!

Exhibition review by Patrick Sutczak (April 2014)

Sleuth is an ongoing series that begins with exhibitions, comics and other crosses into other multimedia. It explores what is happening with the Aussie psyche and soul, a nebulous and amorphous thing.

Joshua Santospirito is an illustrator, musician and multimedia artist who lives in Hobart, Tasmania. His main artistic obsessions revolve around language, anthropology, culture and psychology. His main works in comics have been his very rambling Sleuth series, and the award winning graphic novel The Long Weekend in Alice Springs which he published in 2013 through Sankessto Publications.
