Linus Bill & Adrien Horni:
La Deuxième Chance
La Deuxième Chance introduced works by Swiss artists Linus Bill and Adrien Horni, produced in collaboration for the artistic supplement of this year’s ADC yearbook (Art Directors Club Switzerland) dedicated to Swiss advertising. Creating 434 unique works – one for each page of the book – with predominantly the use of a black & white photocopier, the artists were inspired solely by the refused entries for this year’s ADC completion. This complete series – simultaneously the 41. edition of the zine Turbo Magazine – will for the first time be presented to the public on the occasion of the ADC book release.

Meinsten macht man die im Haus, aber im Sommer gehts auch draussen
Light on photographic paper, reproduced in original scale.
Linus Bill's second publication for Nieves brings out a new side of Bill’s art, still a very personal and intimate body of work like the previous one, but this time around turning the spotlight on himself, with an introspective look at the thoughts of becoming a father and the ways to connect and relate with his soon-to-be born child.
The drawings were produced during a 6 months stay in Paris in 2007, with a technique Bill calls "light on photographic paper", using self-modified pocket-lamps on black&white photographic paper, creating very instinctive works, allowing coincidence, letting accidents happen and leaving mistakes as they are.

PISS DOWN MY BACK AND TELL ME IT'S RAINING
"The pictures in the book "Piss down my back and tell me it's raining." where taken during the last four years. They are the crop of a constantly attentive observation of my environment and coincidence. It's about what you see and how you look at it. There is love, melancholy, beauty, soccer, irony, friendship, adventure, everyday life, humor and the right moment." Linus Bill
