What is the meaning of engraving today? Can this technique reassert itself in the contemporary artistic field?

How can new perspectives be re-imagined from an ancient medium?

Who is the audience? Who is the creator?

Is it possible to link cutting-edge technology and techniques of the past?

Is the best form for this the artist book?

Didier Mutel succeeds in reopening the artistic field of etching by using contemporary techniques and materials. By continuing the exploration of an engraving studio dating back to the 18th century he’s pushing the boundaries of the field of etching.

Artist, geographer and engraver Didier Mutel presents the First Atlas of the United States of Acid for the first time in Belgium.
