Régis Tosetti in collaboration with Donlon Books cordially invites you to the launch of his book “L’Art de la Chasse”(“The Art of Hunting”) published by JRP|Ringier (Zürich) on Tuesday 26 of May at 8.00pm at CAFE OTO.

The book launch will be followed by a slideshow screening and a DJ set by toot!. Accompanying the book will be two posters designed specifically for the launch.

The hunter would have been the first “to tell a story” because he alone was able to read, in the silent, nearly imperceptible tracks left by his prey, a coherent sequence of events. — Carlo Ginzburg

Young Swiss designer Régis Tosetti (born 1982 in Lausanne) presents an enhanced version of his thesis for ECAL (University of art and design, Lausanne), in the form of an artist’s book.

Located somewhere between ethnographic investigation, photo-novel, and initiation epic, “l’Art de la Chasse” (“The Art of Hunting”) overcomes biased standpoints by inviting us to reconsider some fundamental processes related to this practice. Tosetti explores the universe of hunting with an extensive series of photographs produced in collaboration with Yann Gross, and concludes with texts introducing a selection of trophy-pictures written in collaboration with Joël Vacheron.
