Description

When the seasons change, we give a last glimpse at the words and images printed in old newspapers or magazines before the layers of paper and kindling ignite — smoke gets in your eyes. On the page, what is said is often unremarkable, and photographs seem too purposeful to be judged for their intrinsic quality — these photos are not about photography, this text is not about writing.

There you are! The second issue of Le Chauffage contains photographs and texts, photographs of text, photographs as text and vice versa. Loosely thinking through the format of The Photo Essay celebrated by John Szarkowski in an eponymously titled exhibition at MoMA in 1965, this issue considers some of the artistic possibilities that can be found in such an archaic and historically male-dominated form.

Many of the contributions that make up this second issue are not photo essays per se. But each one of them considers the printed page as a space in its own right. The magazine becomes an interior where words and images entertain a malleable and distinctly porous relationship. At times, it is also a space where artists and writers from different cities were invited to meet and collaborate. And since interest in other people is also an interest in yourself, it is always unclear who is really transforming who?

We and everything around us hold charges of information and memories that are contingent on other bodies and memories to create an environment or circumstance (or container, vessel) in which they can emerge. This magazine is a room filled with guests. It archives touch and registers a moment just passed. Look at the smoke stains. It brings discourse a bit closer to our flesh and skin, and upholds our error oriented thinking. As housekeepers, we know that hygiene is an economy. Please come on in, don’t mind the mess…
