E.1027 - Agnès Hostache

The black lizard -

272 pages. Format 16x23 cm. Full color.


After Nagasaki (Ed. Le Lézard Noir, ADAGP / Quai des Bulles 2020 BD Revelation Prize), Agnès Hostache adapts Célia Houdard's novel Tout un monde lointain (Ed. P.O.L.) into a graphic novel. 

One summer in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, Gréco, a decorator, watches over Villa E.1027, the white villa designed by the Irish architect and designer Eileen Gray, with loving care. One day, she surprises Louison and Tessa, two young squatters, dancers with a neo-hippie style. Gréco is as sober and modest as they are sensual, naked and volcanic. The baths and fruit snacks are quickly disturbed by a series of incidents caused by Louison, the most disturbing and unpredictable of the three protagonists, whose taste for cross-dressing and macabre stagings we discover.

With direct and vivid tones, the illustrator plunges us into a sensual and surprising exploration, between iconic 20th century architecture, the intimacy of the characters and the French Riviera sun.

Agnès Hostache

After working as an art director in advertising and then in an interior design agency, Agnès Hostache is, to our great delight, a full-time illustrator. She likes to transcribe, with gouache or acrylic, the little things of everyday life, these scenes composed of tiny details that we would have missed but which really tell our life...

Trained in applied arts, it is certainly her training in interior design that gave her a taste for telling the story of interiors and the lives of their inhabitants. Close to the "Mingei udo" movement (Japanese popular art movement of the 1920s-1930s), she exhibited at Artazart at the end of 2018 "Portraits d'illustres inconnus et autres petits riens". Her first graphic novel "Nagasaki" adapted from the French novel (by Eric Faye), is a miracle of delicate sobriety. It was awarded a prize at the 47th Angoulême Festival.
