La Houle is pleased to invite you to the launch of OBJETS MINCES PART 5, the fifth instalment of a multiple-part publication project in collaboration with artists and authors. Each instalment, containing folded papers, is published as a folder. A final print will conclude the series by gathering all the "Objets Minces."

This fifth installment will focus on the literacy of 3D Printing, the geometry of reproducibility, and rubber-band funding strategies.
A several-part publication project, Objets Minces gathers interventions from various artists and authors on an identical format – an A3 sheet of paper, in order to reflect on the notions of series, of collection, or of sequence. At the crossroads of an edition, a multiple and a periodical, these works articulated around a small-scale form – thin and folded –, play with the notions of instantaneity, of exhibition space, and of imposition during the printing process. Each part of the Objets Minces gathers three folders made by three artists inside a folded cover, and each instalment is presented in a different location.

La Houle is a Brussels-based publishing structure located 72 miles away from the sea, composed of Marie Lécrivain and Jef Caro. From art to fiction, our books try to build bridges between author, translator, artist, and publisher. La Houle will not follow a single path: through various encounters and collaborations, we choose to establish a methodology that will define itself along our publications. La Houle is a non-profit press. Our concern is to find economic ways of making and distributing printed matter, working in close relation to artists’ or writers’ practices.
