"Repartir À Zéro" is an edition of Claude Closky from 2009 and produced by éditions (un)limited store. Taking the form of a black-and-white tabloid-sized newspaper, the copy designed by the artist consists of a graphic deconstruction of the numbers 1, 2, 3, etc. throughout the print.

Starting from scratch, Closky explodes the shapes of the figures and their order page after page to arrive at simple but abstract compositions where each of these parts seems to recompose randomly. By this operation, the newspaper loses its main function: it no longer informs about past events. Closky seems to indicate that he could "become the utopian leader of future events." Language: French
