Based on the same rules than the first edition
, the French exhibit and auction sale Carnets d'inspiration+
has gathered more than 50 contemporary artists and designers
this year, including the likes of Joana Vasconcelos, Katrin Sonnleitner, Thomaas Feichtner, Atelier Van Lieshout, Nils-Udo, and Pierre Bismuth. They have all accepted to use Moleskine sketchbooks as a playground
, turning them into real works of art, to raise funds for the association "Vaincre la Mucoviscidose", which helps people suffering from cycstic fibrosis.
Depending on the artists' creativity, some sketchbooks preserve their essence
, remaining a a place of inspiration, to write down thoughts and to make drawings freely. Others loose their common use so as to become an installation
, a game, an object. Some projects even transcend the paper and unveil their content on a website.
Moleskine supports the event providing the notebooks given to artists and and binding the catalogue showing the pieces of work. For more info, here
