Erik Kessels and Thomas Sauvin’s ‘Talk Soon’ reviewed in the ‘Brooklyn Rail’

Featured spreads are from Talk Soon, the new, spiralbound, collaborative tearaway postcard flipbook from Dutch artist and curator Erik Kessels and French photography collector Thomas Sauvin, produced free-associatively during quarantine. The book, which features equally playful, enigmatic text added to the back of each card by Atelier Éditions co-founder Kingston Trinder, “feels like a tribute to the mind’s associative power,” according to Aida Amoako, who reviews the book for this month’s issue of the Brooklyn Rail. “The photos in Talk Soon, by virtue of being used in a conversation between two artists unable to physically meet because of the COVID-19 pandemic, have gained yet another archival life,” Amoako writes, “becoming a part of the dialogue about this unique moment, despite depicting people and places from at least twenty-five years ago. Rather than presenting the photobook as a nostalgic ode to analog and physical media at a time when physical contact was discouraged, the reanimation of these vernacular photos in this book and its interactivity point instead to a different future, asking how people then might interact with, project onto, and extract meaning from the photographs that will emerge from this time.”
