IDEM PARIS by David Lynch


David Lynch hat einen kleinen Kurzfilm gedreht. Er besuchte die Lithografie-Werkstatt "IDEM PARIS" um seine Werke zu drucken. Die Werkstatt wurde schon von Picasso, Miro, Cocteau und Matisse besucht. Sind ja nicht ganz unbedeutend. Ich liebe ja den Einblick in solche Werkstätten und Ateliers. Und erst der Sound der Druckmaschine...

Hervé Chandès from the Fondation Cartier brought me over to Idem and introduced me to Patrice Forest. I see this incredible place, and I get the opportunity to work there. And this was like a dream! It just opened up this brand-new world of the lithography and the magic of lithography, the magic of the stones. And it was a great, great thing! This thing of lithography, this channel of lithography opened up and a bunch of ideas came flowing out and it led to about a hundred lithographs. I will say that Idem printing studio has a unique, very special mood, and it is so conducive to creating. Patrice has the greatest attitude for all the artists and he creates this space of freedom and this joy of creating. It’s so beautiful! And I think the place is very important—in other words, the same stone could be moved to another place, and I think that the work that comes out would be different. It’s a combination of the stone, the place, the people, this mood, and out comes these certain ideas.
