In several works Raphaël Langmair deals with duplications. He finds an object and makes a replica, although differently from its original. In the past he used ink of an octopus for making one in print of that same octopus. In another work he takes a fruit market crate and rebuilds it into a triangle shaped one.
Recently one morning he burnt his toast. He took another slice of bread in order to make a toast again. While waiting he decided to burn deliberately the next one as well that brought him two burnt toasts that he turned into a piece, hence the title of this edition: “Again”. KvG
