La Librairie


The book This Mortal House Building 1 by Maria Stamenković Herranz, published by Palais Books, seeks to translate into editorial form the artist’s performance at Istanbul’s Sakıp Sabancı Museum, commissioned by the Marina Abramovic Institute.
For 24 days, Maria Stamenkovic Herranz built a labyrinth within the museum, brick by brick, blindfolded, before destroying it on the final day.
The round table organised at the Fab. will be an opportunity to look again at the issues surrounding performance art and the question of representation and documentation of ephemeral art.
The bookshop will be exhibiting unique works exploring questions of trace and the relationship with the archive.

With the presence of :
Maria Stamenković Herranz, artist and performer
Serge Le Borgne, curator and artistic director of the Marina Abramovic Institute
Yann Linsart, designer and publisher of Palais Books

Maria Stamenković Herranz is a multidisciplinary artist and performer based in Paris. Since the age of eleven, she has embarked on an artistic practice in which her body has become her main material for over thirty years.

Having lived and worked in cities such as Barcelona, Madrid, Amsterdam, Antwerp, London, New York, Novi Sad, Zurich and Paris, her work highlights the power of the resilient body and explores bodily presence in time and space in relation to the viewer.
She uses a variety of media, including performance, theatre and the visual arts, to challenge established cultural narratives and myths.
Since 1998, she has presented her work internationally in a multitude of contexts and formats, including exhibitions such as Fragile Panic (Martch Gallery, Istanbul, 2022), This Mortal House Building 2 (Royal Carré Theatre, Amsterdam, 2022), Metamorphosis of Landscapes (Bangkok Art Biennale, 2021), This Mortal House Building 1 (Sakip Sabanci Museum, Istanbul, 2020), and performances such as Medea: Impulse & Ear (Benaki Museum, Athens, 2016).

In addition to her artistic work, she has also directed, worked as a dramaturge, taught and written plays. She has worked closely with other artists in a variety of fields including film, photography, media, choreography and theatre, in prestigious venues such as with Jan Fabre (Je Suis Sang, Histoire des Larmes, at the Cour d’Honneur du Palais des Papes, Avignon, 2005-2007, The Crying Body at the Théâtre de la Ville Paris, etc. ), Marina Abramovic (The Artist is Present, MoMA, New York, 2010) and Deborah Kampmeier (Split, Sarasota Film Festival, 2016).

Her first book, This Mortal House Building 1, published by Palais Books, bears witness to her obsession with leaving a documentation of her work, which she sees as leaving traces, and represents a natural continuation of the impact and necessity of the living arts.

Serge Le Borgne is the artistic director of the Marina Abramovic Institute.
In 2009, Marina Abramović and Serge Le Borgne began collaborating on the legacy of the artist’s work, and in 2013 he created the legal and administrative organisation of the Marina Abramovic Institute in New York.

In 1989, Le Borgne was a sales assistant in Japan for the Paris-based art bookshop Jullien-Cornic, where he worked on illustrated books and catalogues raisonnés. He also attended art and architecture exhibitions, notably Arata Isozaki, Bram Van Velde and Giorgio Morandi. From 1990 to 1997, he lived in Hong Kong, where he was associated with an international company specialising in the trade of manufactured and raw products between Asian producers (Hong Kong, China, Thailand, Taiwan, Indonesia, India) and French and American distributors.

Yann Linsart, who graduated from the École nationale de la photographie in 2008, founded the online magazine The Viewer (2009-2011), through which he published 10 issues. This experience enabled him to work in both graphic design and curation.

From 2011, he concentrated on graphic design, particularly in the field of books. Over the course of 10 years, Yann Linsart designed over 70 books in the fields of photography and contemporary art before co-founding Palais Books with Delphine Manjard (Librairie du Palais). In 2022, their first book, “Desidera Nuncia” by SMITH, Raphmaj and Diplomates, won the book prize at the Rencontres d’Arles.
Since then, he has continued to create books for Palais Books, while also working for other publishers and institutions as a graphic designer and art director.
He has collaborated with Actes Sud, The Eyes Publishing, Filigranes, the Palais de Tokyo, the Musée de la Nature et de la Chasse, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, the Château de Versailles, the BnF, the Opéra de Paris, Arte, the Lee Ufan Foundation, the 50° Nord 3° Est network, the École Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie and others.
His work has been selected for various festivals in France, Spain, Brazil and Japan.
