This artist book introduce the 25 first photos of the Metragram Series, which were presented at gallery Rossicontemporary in Brussels, along with the second chapter entitled tu es venue from the book Poser by Michel Assenmaker. The book was launched @ WIELS in Brussels on the 30th of October 2009, coincidently the evening of the death of Claude Levi-Strauss who's book "Tristes Tropiques" was instrumental in inspiring the series. It was accompanied by an original slideshow screening as well as a short documentary entitled Michiyuki, filmed at the end of 2008 by Azilys Romane during a dual video-talk invited by Sophie Nys which took place in the context of "De Avonden" organized by the Brussels independant project space établissements d'en face, an event which is at the origin of the making of the book.
