Ben Sanair, Going to Japan, La General Minerale: Avignon, France, 2018

This is a really fun 2-color screen printed accordion in which Ben Sanair documents, in words and images, a trip to Japan he made at the end of 2017. While in Tokyo, Sanair attends the opening of a show of his art work at the legendary bookstore Taco Ché, as well as playing a gig with the experimental Japanese band, Kuro Pipe. This accordion really communicates Sanair's excitement at being in this new country as he records his encounters with the unique features of Japanese culture.  

Ben Sanair is based in Avignon, France, where with his partner, Julie Big, they run a cool print studio called La Generale Minerale [http://www.lageneraleminerale.net/] - check it out!

Each page 5.5" (h) x 3.5" (w), 36 pages one-sided, when fully opened 10' 6".
