Central Vapeur and Inuit (a collective of illustrators from Bologna, Italy) chose the guests for this perfomance/residence/24h workshop and decided the conditions.
From Thursday, 11th at 1 pm to Friday, 12th at 1 pm, about twenty illustrators from Alsace, France or Italy, professionals or students created relentlessly. During the 24 hours, one visiting hour allowed the public to discover the work in live, also broadcasted on 24h-illustration.tumblr.com. A publishing of the works has been realized on the spot and presented to the public at the same time as the exhibition of the original productions, on Friday evening from 7 pm to 9 pm.
24h de l’illustration was inspired from 24h de la bande dessinée, imported for the first time in Europe by Sylvain-Moizie working for the Pacôme Institut in Strasbourg. The conditions (theme, size, number of pictures, colors, etc.) established by the 24h de l'illustration offer a new working environment for the illustrators. It is the opportunity to work together even if it is not completely a collective work. The limited time and the physical challenge belong to experimentations in technics and in the way of thinking the work. The program established by Inuit and Central Vapeur was also a way to create new meetings between illustrators and to reunite them around a common goal: a final publication of their work printed with a risograph on the spot by Pierre Faedi from éditions Gargarismes and Marco Tavarnesi from Inuit.
