Frédéric Pajak is an artist and writer from Switzerland, winner of 2015 Swiss Literature Awards and 2014 Prix Médicis for his essays. Pajak is known for inventing an original format of artwork in which text and image are closely intertwined. The piece becomes neither a picture book, nor a comics, but a surprising mix of words and images that mirror each other. Since 2012, Frédéric Pajak has published nine volumes of Manifeste incertain (“Uncertain Manifesto”), in which he narrates in his own experimental manner, interchanging the story with his drawings.
Writer has already visited Russia to work on the seventh volume of Manifeste devoted to Emily Dickinson and Marina Tsvetaeva.
This year, Frédéric plans to work in Russian archives to study and collect material for a new book about Kazimir Malevich and Russian artists who are little-known in Europe.
