Profane n.14


Profane is an independent French magazine that moves between art and collecting and is characterized by truly experimental graphics.
Profane has only one hobby: the amateur, artist or collector, novice or expert, fervent admirer or creator in his spare time.
Profane has a creed: observe him, see him evolve, approach him in his environment, question his practice, alone or in a group, probe his secret passion or his private production.
Profane presents a recurring hero rather than a discipline and welcomes him as a guest.
Profane speaks of those who love to do things, of those who find meaning in the beauty of the gesture, far from the official stands.

To retrieve. To recycle. Divert. Verbs common to many self-taught and collectors who visit our pages, issue after issue. A practice that settles a little more in this fourteenth edition, which dedicates a broader reflection on waste.

After all, what could be more intimate, and therefore precious, than what we reject?
