Olivier Bertrand

De erg

Olivier Bertrand designs page-based objects that are sometimes folded and sometimes not, sometimes digital and sometimes printed. His research into publishing focuses on appropriation and hacking the leftover from industrial production. With similar mindset, he runs a publishing house called Surfaces Utiles. He also wrote Froncer les sourcils(.pdf), a critical essay about the economy of contemporary publishing practices, and Les clôtures du paradis, a walk from enclosed gardens to illuminated pages. Since 2015, he has edited La Perruque, a 90 centimetre long magazine printed in the margins of regular documents, and publishing nonstandard type specimens.
