Tristes Tropiques :

Illustrations hors texte

An artistbook consisting of a  facsimile consisting of the photographic supplement of the book Tristes Tropiques (1955) by the French cultural anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss. This supplement, Illustrations hors texte, counts a numbered index with descriptions and 63 black and white photos.
 
All sixty-three original illustrations in the book were meticulously remade with a group of Beeterzwaag residents who reenacted Lévi-Strauss’ photographs in their own surroundings. Aëgerter and Van Tienhoven recreated the french anthropologist’s intimate and revealing photographs of Indian tribes in Brazil.  By means of this form of ‘counter exploration’ through space and time the artists emphasize the continuity of human expression and cultural exchange.

This book is printed in 1000 copies numbered.
