Jean Lenoir decided to introduce taste and smell into the world of culture, and presented wines of France and of the world at the Maison de la Culture in Chalon-sur-Saône, the 14th cultural center in André Malraux’s project, where he then worked as Assistant Director.
He studied with Max Léglise, oenologist, researcher, and one of the originators of sensory analysis, at the Station œnologique de Bourgogne (INRA, Beaune, Burgundy).
Their book-works call upon several senses: sight and touch but also smell, breaking at once from the conventional way we relate to books. Open it up like a jewel case, slip off its sleeve or wooden sliding top, and you will discover a book and a collection of small glass vials. Pick one and nose it: it will open up a whole new world for you!
Jean Lenoir’s brainchild is placed under the patronage of visual artist Daniel Spoerri, who gave him the idea of designing « book-objects » in 1980. The creator of « snare-pictures », vertically immortalized remains of meals, liked to gather different sensory experiences together. For example, he opened up a restaurant where he cooked.
