DESIGNER, PAINTER AND SCULPTOR, ORIGINALLY FROM NANTES, NOW BASED IN PARIS, JEAN JULLIEN GIVES LIFE TO 2-DIMENSIONAL CHARACTERS WHOSE CONTOURS HE CUTS OUT. THE PAPER PEOPLE EMERGE FROM HIS BOOKS TO WANDER INTO THE REAL WORLD, SOMETIMES EVEN THE ARTIST'S DAILY LIFE: ONE MAN LOUNGES ON A HUGE TERRACE, ANOTHER HUGS A TREE, OR INTRUDES IN THE VAST HALL OF A DEPARTMENT STORE.

EACH ESCAPES TO GO ON AN ADVENTURE INSTEAD OF WATCHING IT PASSIVELY PASS BY. THIS BOOK RETRACES ALL THE INSTALLATIONS DEDICATED TO PAPER PEOPLE BY JEAN JULLIEN. WE PERCEIVE THE PLAYFUL AND POETIC DIMENSION OF HIS WORK.
