The Object Bestiary
To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the company wants to pay tribute to the objects it has had dubious the pleasure of meeting. Fifty such objects will be showcased on a website, the Object Bestiary, which will serve as a virtual display case. Images and texts will be progressively added between February and June 2019. Some are from shows, while others illustrate the art of object theatre.
The Object Bestiary is set to become a unique creative space, a patchwork where archives, interviews, memories, testimonials and evidence will be exhibited next to unpublished works and original linocuts by Julie Vallée-Léger.

La Pire Espèce Creative journal is there to provide a little insight, but don’t expect to find any clear answers! (in French)
