Agence VU - Serge Picard
Serge Picard

Represented by Gallery VU'

Serge Picard explores the various technical possibilities and limits of photogaphy: its production, its time, its decomposition, its space, and its eternalisation of faces. Easily transitioning from portrait to landscape, from nude to material studies, from colour to black and white, from Fresson printing to Polaroid negative, he treats his subjects with an endless depth, only wanting to better understand photography itself.

In the footsteps of Joan of Arc (2007)

Once again, the roads of Sologne and Lorraine host countless travellers following in her footsteps.

All of these stops are now celebrated by tourists who believe that followings her journey brings the great moments of French history back to life.

Edges of the world, France (2001)

Landscapes from the "Edges of the world", between the land and sea which they explore, could have been realized with a calotype by a contemporary photographer of Gustave Le Gray. But it has been realized nowadays, with their fine greys, stability of the space always shut in a closed frame, organized auround the skyline in the perfect rules of classic composition. Those landscapes push us at the limit of romanticism, in a slow and heavy time, only animated by winter lights.

Sponte Sua (2000)

Serge Picard's photographs are illustrating Nathalie Papin's text...like Nathalie's Papin's text is illustrating Serge Picard's photographs. In these pictures, we found a research work on the photographic aesthetic : bodies are material at the disposal of the author...a bit like words are the first material for writing.

Beaubourg, the Parisian museum (1999)

The tray that shelters the Parisian museum, wanted by president Pompidou, was a hot issue when built at the end of the years seventies. Serge Picard walks along with his camera, making little difference between the exhibited artworks and the architecture of Renzo Piano and richard Rogers... between the centre itself and the people that are going there.

Sponte Sua

Sponte Sua (de son propre mouvement) nous entraîne dans un univers de visages et de corps, comme suspendus, hésitants, entre plusieurs réalités. «Ces portraits frémissent d’une vie toute particulière. Ils reflètent, en effet, toute l’ambiguïté du genre : le “bougé” qui les caractérise, réintègre toute la présence du sujet photographié. [...] Le trouble qui émane de ces portraits pourrait correspondre à une dérobade, une fuite du sujet». Nathalie Luyer - Vis à Vis International. Devant ces images décalées, Nathalie Papin nous propose une traversée imaginaire aux côtés de ces «acteurs» impalpables, devenus sous sa plume un cortège étonné.

Le Marais Poitevin

Nous vous offrons un voyage, un long parcours silencieux où s'ouvrent cent fenêtres sur ce pays d'eau, de lumière, de transparences. Reflets d'un monde qui perdure à fleur de regard, où les signes sont aussi des matins qui se lèvent et des promesses de vie.

Heads taken (Cahors)
From 2012-06-01 to 2012-07-01

The portraits, Face-to-face, often on order, with great figures of music are beyond today by the complete lack of story in the confrontation. This is because a purely photographic time is at work in Serge Picard\'s work that his images remain mysterious, enigmatic, and they capture the gaze in order to lead it to lose themselves in memories of childhood, between bliss and nightmare possible.
