Sève is a literary magazine, a landscape of contemporary creation. Short stories, excerpts from novels, poetry, essays, interviews: 35 previously unpublished texts bring "ghosts" to light. Far from the forest fires of reality, Sève n°2 takes you to the roots of memories, where the springs of creation flow. Emerging authors such as Seynabou Sonko (Djinns, Grasset, 2023) and Adrien Lafille (La transparence, Éditions Van Loo, 2022) intersect with voices that are already resonating, such as those of Yannick Haenel and Joseph Andras.

Visible and invisible cohabit. Childhood, ancient museums, a zombie satellite, a few BPM, silver reflections on the Seine, a topography of the sensual, but also words sent over the ocean, an elusive Russian revolutionary, shovelfuls of pixels, appetizing science fiction, SMS messages to the other world, astonishing pyrophilic plants or animal masks... An unprecedented landscape appears, bearing the seeds of a common future.

With artists Iris de Moüy, Eric Minh Cuong Castaing, Prune Phi etc., critic Florian Gaité and curator Đỗ Tường Linh, images rub shoulders with texts. Literature is an art form among others. Invited to appear between the pages of Sève, the magazine Paris L.A, dedicated to experimentation in the arts since 2008, will appear in the form of a conversation between Dorothée Perret and Constance Debré.

The wandering manifesto on the front page of Sève n°2 is inspired by Anna Tsing (Le champignon de la fin du monde, La Découverte, 2017), Vinciane Despret (Les morts à l'oeuvre, La Découverte, 2023) and Nastassja Martin, but could have quoted Jacques Derrida, who haunts the pages of this issue. The cover of Sève n°2 features Chantilly in July - Archive from year 89, an extract from Tropism, Consequences of a displaced memory (Area Books Publishing, 2022) by Nhu Xuan Hua, a French artist of Vietnamese origin.
