At the crossroads of genres, comics is a three-story narrative bus; text – image – combination. Long reduced to an object of entertaining consumption, the medium becomes a playground and experimental laboratory and the purpose is no longer necessarily the book object. The codes are questioned, dismantled, unbolted or… used against time, against the current, in opposing or complementary spaces; the visual and poetic stakes penetrate the story of comic strips, while the codes specific to comic strips migrate into the exhibition spaces. It will therefore be a question, in this meeting between Ilan Manouach and Dominique Goblet, of floating borders and porosity between artistic fields and their narrative potential.
