Most artists, at some point in their careers, have tackled the representation of the universal symbol of creation: the hand.
Many of them have even chosen the hand as a recurring pattern in their artistic production.
This finding inspired the publisher and founder of Chose Commune, Cécile Poimboeuf-Koizumi to collect, in a book, without a thematic or chronological order, the works that have most captured her attention.
The selection was made in collaboration with Stephen Ellcock, who has distinguished himself in recent years for bringing the art gallery directly to the people with his glorious collection of images he shares daily on Instagram and Facebook.
From Pablo Picasso to Helena Almeida, from Louise Bourgeois to Alberto Giacometti, from John Baldessari to Francesca Woodman, including a multitude of treasures from antiquity to popular image documents, “Jeux de mains” confronts and mixes famous, emerging, and anonymous artists from a wide range of practices.
The result is a collection of over one hundred carefully selected images.
