Limited edition of the book Cover Up accompanied by an original photographic print.
The book Cover Up gathers a selection of photographs that document covered graffiti by different authorities around the world.
"The photographic samples made by Matthieu Martin in the course of his wanderings through various metropolises, filled with graffiti and concealments alike, invite us to stop so as to perceive their formal richness and narrative treasures. For, beyond the visual attractions, a story emerges with already at least three episodes respectively situated in the present, the future and the past. We see the picture, we guess what is out of frame and we imagine the offered pattern, fixed like a butterfly in an everlasting suspended time, a sort of eternal present. We can also imagine a follow-up to the life of the wall fragment caught by the lens, chosen by the eye of the artist and which is on the point of becoming, right before our eyes, a piece of art. Painting references arise, turning the covering into a painting." --Denys Riout.
