Manic Shooter reimagines the aesthetics of early shoot 'em up video games. In-game screenshots of brightly coloured projectiles and spaceships, serve as raw material for the visual interpretation of Alain Vonck. This series of lively and evocative abstractions is complemented by the words of Guillaume Ladvie. Translated from French into Japanese and English, the poem deals with the dark and universal themes of war. This dialogue between words and images draws an ambiguous portrait of violence, lost between shadow and light.

An adventure through the space-time continuum, Antoine Orand’s Relatives is, much like its subject matter, a narrative progression that has no real beginning or ending. The mix of primary palette, heavy black outline and postmodern motifs pull at the very fabric of the comic book panel format.
