First and foremost we are editing this series of Journal to please ourselves, and to keep on gardening the vast and astonishing wonders of art and literature. We hope it will also serve as a source of inspiration and awe for artists and art lovers. Thought as an invitation au voyage it plays on unexpected correspondances between the ancient and the contemporary, the written and the visual. Our desire is to create a book in motion evolving through time, opened to changes, until a final version is printed. This first issue of our Journal is dedicated to Eros, the Greek deity of love. A complex and ubiquitous figure that drapes about everything and plays an endless game of hide-and-seek with our imagination. We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are. Anais Nin …Or as we secretly want to be…treated, viewed, touched, adored, violated, loved, fucked, kissed, held, worshipped, degraded, caressed, seduced, hurt, restrained, entered, torn apart, made whole again. Bon Voyage!
