X. The Ten Faces of Fred Faurtin


Imagined by Exterface, «X» is as a ten-acts work of art and the result of ten months working on themes such as seduction and conquest. On more than a hundred of pictures, the duet direct Fred Faurtin, through ten characters, with surprising and captivating women and men (François Sagat, Vin Costes, Dj Leomeo...). All together, they experience an emotional journey, cover and undercover, travel through times, locations where baroque, romanticism, fantastic, thriller, punk and even antiquity are mixed.


Amazed by his charm and his powerful sex-appeal, Exterface chooses Fred Faurtin as the main figure of this new production. Having developped a great artistic frienship and already done two warmly acclaimed collaborations (MasterSlave & Swan), the artists revisit the myth of a pornstar and draw the portrait of a pop icon with multiple faces. Either a melancholic marquis, either a sulfurous athlete, Fred Faurtin triomph as a charmer hero in this intense and subtle epic.

Beach Calligraphy

"Scratching in the sand with a stick, however, has proved less than satisfactory because it makes more of a mess than a mark. This has led me, over the past seven years, to develop various instruments which mark the sand in less messy ways, and ultimately to a kind of scoop which leaves neat V-cut letters of the sort one gets in stone carving".

Happy Birthday BILLY

One of the most significant items in the ever growing IKEA catalogue celebrates its 30th birthday. The BILLY bookshelves were introduced in 1979 and are still one of the big sellers. I myself don't have a BILLY. I love IKEA, as you might or might not know, but BILLY is not a practical way to store big books on art or photography. BILLY just isn't deep enough, so I still go with BONDE. Anyway, happy birthday BILLY and I will definately buy your Birthday-Book!

On the Cover of a Magazine

A beautiful classic picture of Madonna by Herb Ritts graces the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine (issue 1090, October 29th). Inside there's a new interview and here are some highlights Thanks to madonnalicious):

On her biggest hits:
'I've never been a good judge of what things are going to be huge or not. The songs that I think are the most retarded songs I've written, like 'Cherish' and 'Sorry', a pretty big hit off my last album, end up being the biggest hits. 'Into the Groove' is another song I feel retarded singing, but everybody seems to like it.'

On Lady GaGa:
'I see myself in Lady Gaga. When I saw her, she didnt have a lot of money for her production. She's got holes in her fishnets, and there's mistakes everywhere. It was kind of a mess, but I can see that she has that IT Factor. It's nice to see that at a raw stage.'

On Justin Timberlake:
'Justin is a brilliant songwriter. I mean, 'What Goes Around....Comes Around?' Brilliant. I thought it would be a challenge to work with him. He's sort of a Cary Grant. I love him. I love working with him.'

On who's turned her down:
'I wanted to work with Eminem. I don't think he wanted to work with me. Maybe he's shy.'

On her 80's hairstyles & looks:
'It's ok. It was the 80's. It was a bad haristyle era. Let's face it.'

On growing up:
'I was a geek in high school. I didn't really have a drink until my first divorce.'

The biggest challenge of her career?:
'Working on Evita. It's a whole different singing sensibility. I had to seriously work with a vocal coach.'

On the first 3 concerts she saw:
'My first show was David Bowie. My second show was Elton John. And my third was Bob Marley! Not bad, right?'
