From the publisher: "In French, 'frisson' means a spine-tingling shiver of fear, recognition or joy. This volume, the only complete retrospective of the great French artist Bernard Faucon, elicits all three types of 'frissons,' sometimes simultaneously. Faucon's bizarre, staged works use mannequins, often combined with live models, to reframe ordinary human experiences with bone-chilling strangeness." Includes images from the series: Les Grandes Vacances 1977-1981; Évolution probable du Temps 1981-1984; Les Chambre d'or 1987-1989; Les Idoles et les Sacrifices 1989-1991; Les Écritures 1991-1993; and La Fin de L'image 1993-1995.
