rile* is a bookshop and project space for publication and performance. rile* is into poetry, theory, choreography, artist writing and various other text based experiments. rile* organizes performances, meetings, launches, readings... rile* is the base word for silence in Láadan, a feminist constructed language developed by Suzette Haden Elgin in 1982. The language was included in her science fiction Native Tongue series. Láadan contains a number of words that are used to make unambiguous statements that include how one feels about what one is saying. According to Elgin, this is designed to counter language's limitations to those who are forced to respond I know I said that, but I meant this.
Our bookshop is open on Wednesday and Thursday from 11h to 17h, and from Friday to Sunday from 11h to 18.30h.
If you are interested to stock with us, get in touch, we are open for conversation and new friendships.

This bilingual edition in two booklets (French/English) brings together short texts and narratives by Laure Vigna, accompanied by notes from news media and scientific articles. Several narrators, with more or less abstract identities alternately representing materials, sculptural forms, or the author, seem to speak under the effect of their emotional states. Sharing the same spaces of action and words, they merge throughout the text, forming only one physical body at the end. In a collaborative effort between Laure Vigna and graphic designer Roxanne Maillet, the publication reveals research conducted on typography and letters as body, receptacles, and spaces.
