Sam Szafran. Interviews with Alain Veinstein
Alain Veinstein meets Sam Szafran from 2008 to 2011. Alain Veinstein wants to hear from the artist about his friendship with Alberto Giacometti. But very quickly, the artist who refuses all interviews confides in him. Szafran talks about his childhood, his "Jewish experience", which, according to him, calls for withdrawal and solitude, and then about painting, which saves this young child guilty of having miraculously survived the war.
Jean Clair says of his work that "it is one of the most secret and poetic of our time". Flayed alive, an artist of vertigo, Sam Szafran reveals himself here for the first time.
Interviews with Sam Szafran is the only testimony of this artist of workshops, printing works, staircases or plants, who mixed black and shiny charcoals with the coloured powders of pastels. We meet Yves Klein, Alberto and Diego Giacometti or Henri Cartier-Bresson and painting. A full-colour extra-text booklet allows a better appreciation of the artist's work.
