“One of the great conquests of contemporary art is to have seen writing as such, recognizing its specific plasticity. Quentin is one of those who has drawn the most from it, meaning artworks. Everything he has created in this hollowness of our modernity refers to the landmark in the world that is writing.”
Jean-Clarence Lambert (Quentin, des graffitis aux Monuments, 1991)
When the world becomes earth and earth becomes the world … A poetic breeze accompanies the work of Bernard Quentin. Poetic since his works mirror plays on words and playful signs. But where do they start? In the word or in their shape? In the sounds or in the calligraphy? Is it inside or outside? Earth destroyed, earth multiplied.
In the “Art For All” collection, Bernard Quentin’s semiotic art takes the shape of a silver globe, where the words in perspective cradle in the palm of our hands. Our precious earth, both cradle of humanity and land of opportunities, is universal, in this case the artist could not have given a better tribute for the “Art For All” collection.
