Since 1977

Since 1977, I have written more than 300 000 kilometers of words, that is to say put end to end, one way trip from Earth to the Moon. Or a second to light for this trip. A second light words in 30 years, some 3 billion signs.

Le Parcours du Double: Histoire en image d'un parcours sans histoire, d'un parcours divinatoire hors du champs mystique des possibilites du dessous des cartes. Navigation graphique entre les oeuvres de Yann LeBechec et la photographie mythique de Evgueni Kaldei., Tirage au sort d'evenements vecus, de rencontres au coeur de mon histoire personnelle; chacun s'y retrouve !

The Vickers Viscount was a British medium-range turboprop airliner first flown in 1948 by Vickers-Armstrongs, the first such aircraft to enter service in the world. A product of the Brabazon Committee, it used a new form of propulsion, the turboprop engine, replacing the conventional piston engine.

The Viscount was well received by the public for its cabin conditions, which included pressurisation, reductions in vibration and noise, and panoramic windows. It became one of the most successful and profitable of the first post-war transport aircraft; 445 Viscounts were built for a range of international customers, including in North America.

Painter, graphic designer and illustrator, born in 1961 in Paris. 

Yann Le Bechec graduated from Ensad (National School of Decorative Arts, Paris in 1990) and Cooper Union (School of Arts, New York in 1991). After ten years of graphic design in various sectors (companies and banks, cultural institutions, textbooks, extracurricular, educational literature, exhibition signage, illustration) and several art exhibitions, he has since 2002, worked as artistic director of an interiors magazine. 

Yann works with various media as an illustrator (Le Nouvel Observateur, NVO, Libération), and generated drawings for various reportage books including: "New York, black neighborhoods" (1991 Éditions Albin Michel), "Off-shore North Sea " (1993, Editions Albin Michel) and "Israel-Palestine " with Jean-Paul Mari (2004, Editions Jalan).

Les Bains Douches était une boîte de nuit située 7, rue du Bourg-l’Abbé dans le 3e arrondissement de Paris. Haut lieu des nuits parisiennes durant les années 1980, Les Bains Douches deviennent le rendez-vous de la société mondaine et artistique internationale. Après maintes péripéties au cours des décennies, la discothèque ferme ses portes en 2010. Jean-Pierre Marois, propriétaire historique du lieu, fonde en 2011 la société Les Bains dans le cadre de la rénovation du nouveau projet.

Yann LeBechec-Sans titres. 1991.

In the Realm of the Senses (French: L’Empire des sens, Japanese: 愛のコリーダ, Ai no korīda) is a 1976 French-Japanese art film directed by Nagisa Oshima. It is a fictionalised and sexually explicit treatment of an incident from 1930s Japan, that of Sada Abe. It generated great controversy during its release; while intended for mainstream wide release, it contains scenes of unsimulated sexual activity between the actors (Tatsuya Fuji and Eiko Matsuda, among others).
In 1936 Tokyo, Sada Abe (Eiko Matsuda) is a former prostitute who now works as a maid in a hotel. The hotel's owner, Kichizo Ishida (Tatsuya Fuji), molests her, and the two begin an intense affair that consists of sexual experiments and various self-indulgences. Ishida leaves his wife to pursue his affair with Sada. Sada becomes increasingly possessive and jealous of Ishida, and Ishida more eager to please her. Their mutual obsession escalates to the point where Ishida finds she is most excited by strangling him during lovemaking, and he is killed in this fashion. Sada then severs his penis, walks around with it inside her for weeks, and writes, "Sada Kichi the two of us forever," in blood on his chest.
