Concept and design of the exhibition catalogue Spasticus Artisticus that took place at Ceri Hand in Liverpool.
The exhibition was organized around Ian Dury's controversial song Spasticus Autisticus (1981) about the disabled. The idea was to take the object of the catalogue in a glossy, out-of-synch world and make a somehow strange, if not handicapped, magazine. The graphic design is rooted in the visual typology of magazines from the early 1980s. The notion of handicap is taken up in part through the catalogue's uncut pages, which invite the reader to cute them and thereby to create an object full of ruggedness.
Winner of the Prix Fernand Baudin Prize 2011.
