J’avais posé le monde sur la table
“J’avais posé le monde sur la table” is not a catalog of photographs but a call to wander on earth, an invitation to discover the worlds of Gérard Rondeau. Here, history overturns geography, events are embedded in landscapes, but Gérard Rondeau’s images are timeless. They could have been taken during the First World War, in the 1920s and 1930s, in the trench of a purified modernity, reworked, subjected to a great game of collage. How do we recognize an artist? To his world, of course, which is like no other, immediately identifiable, to the way he imposes his imagination in a struggle as intense as that of Jacob with the angel. I have always been amazed by Gérard Rondeau’s creative force. And yet he only works against the sky, in lightness, discretion, even in war-torn cities like Sarajevo. »
