Tribute to Bernard Guillot, artist photographer born in 1950 in Basel and died on June 29, 2021. Bernard Guillot shared his time between Egypt and France. Two sensations of time, two sensations of civilization, two belonging to the world, but a unity of time and place, or of atemporality and extraterritoriality, in a double look: photography and painting, with a wonderful taste for enigma. Bernard Guillot draws up in his works as in his paintings, in addition, a disturbing geography made of inexplicable rites and fraternal mysteries. Bernard Guillot formed his sensibility in Paris as well as in New York City, where he stayed in the 70's but it is in Cairo that the impregnation is the deepest. Paris brings a requirement for the creation of artworks, making it necessary but Cairo and Egypt, where he has been living for a long time, would deepen the Meaning, its scope; enlightening it more vividly. The exhibition places two parts of Bernard Guillot's work in parallel. One, composed of a series of silver photographs. The other part is the painting itself, deduced. This painted work, realized in 2019, allied to the photographic work, should give us a key to try to penetrate further into the sensitive, autonomous world, which is that of Art. There will be back and forth between the two dimensions, a friction of the glance which can emancipate, question, make reach the mystery bound to the creation.

L’un, composé d’une série de photographies argentiques 2017 : el shaha, révélant la réalité clignotante de l’atelier. L’autre pan étant la peinture elle-même, déduite. Cette œuvre peinte, réalisée en 2019, alliée à l’œuvre photographique, devrait nous donner une clé pour tenter de pénétrer plus loin dans le monde sensible, autonome, qui est celui de l’Art. Il y aura des va-et-vient entre les deux dimensions, un frottement du regard qui peut émanciper, questionner, faire accéder au mystère lié à la création. Bernard Guillot partage son temps entre l’Egypte et la France. Deux sensations du temps, deux sensations de civilisation, deux appartenances au monde, mais une unité de temps et de lieu, ou d’atemporalité et d’extraterritorialité, dans un regard double : la photogra- phie et la peinture, avec un goût merveilleux de l’énigme. Bernard Guillot dresse dans ses œuvres comme dans ses peintures, en sus, une géographie troublante faite de rites inexplicables et de mystères fraternels.
