Lapin-Canard was founded by Nicolas Mihle and Matthieu Clainchard, in Paris Belleville on the 1st of May 2015 and does artists’ posters.
It offers visual artists it enjoys carte blanche on a single A0 format (840 x 1188 mm). The posters are pigmented inkjet prints on 189g/m2 matt paper. They are released in affordable editions of 10 alongside 1 exhibition print and 1 artist’s proof. The prints are made on demand by Atelier Martin Garanger in Paris.
Lapin-Canard is non-lucrative and remits 60% of profits to the artist. Releases are always celebrated with music, libations and dances, in Paris or elsewhere.

 

Lapin-Canard
by Vincent Pécoil

In the beginning, “Lapin-Canard” was the name given to parties at a bar in Belleville, organised by
Matthieu Clainchard and Nicolas Milhé. Since these parties brought together a large number of artists, the
idea naturally arose to also make them into artistic events. To avoid the exhibition-in-a-bar pitfall, with its
slightly sad connotation of being an exhibition for lack of anything better, the principle adopted was to
produce artists’ posters and present them at each party, initially one, and subsequently several. The poster
or posters were affixed to one of the large windows of the restaurant-bar, so that they were visible from the
outside. The first Lapin-Canard party accompanied by the presentation of one of these prints took place on
1 May 2015 at La Cantine Fabien, a restaurant-bar located on the Place of the same name. La Cantine
Fabien became the group’s Command Post, across from the headquarters of the other CP*. In the summer
of 2015, Lapin-Canard became an association and publishing house, joined during that period by Lily
Matras, who later became its president.
The term “poster”, which the association’s members prefer to “edition” or “multiple”, is significant. It refers to
a common use of images: that custom of decorating one’s interior, to show one’s adherence to a world, to a
sensibility, to tastes. In the context of the Lapin-Canard parties, the poster is a way of provisionally
embellishing our environment, making it our own—in a way comparable to how teenagers decorate their
bedrooms with posters to personalise them. The use of this specific word is also a means of attenuating its
preciosity, since these posters are actually expensive prints produced in a limited edition: ten copies, plus
an artist’s proof and an exhibition print retained by the association. But this does not mean the exhibition
copy is treated like an ordinary poster, reappearing every time with tears, stains and wear accumulated
over the course of its exhibitions. […]
