André Cadere published only two texts during his lifetime. Between May and July 1978, in the weeks preceding his death, he wrote forty-three letters to his friend and gallery owner, Yvon Lambert. These letters – a moving testimony to his thinking, his practice and his work – are published here for the first time in their entirety, and constitute the artist’s third and last writing, after Presentation of a work. Use of a work (1974), and History of a work (1982). The edition is composed of a slipcase that gathers the book introduced by Bernard Marcelis – specialist of Cadere, author of his catalogue raisonné – followed by the 43 letters commented, annotated and illustrated.
