Gwenaelle Magadur

The primal trait

"With Gwenaelle Magadur, it may well be that the beginning was a trait.

A primal trait, as one utters the cry that shakes destiny.

And the rest, whether it's about capturing the essence of the gesture,

the fluidity of the water, the circulation of air in foliage

or the expressive magic of the soloist on a stage, is only the meticulous deciphering,

day after day, sign after sign, of the beauty and pain of being in the world. 


It is in the intimate paleography, imagining what adorns his “original Lascaux”,

that it is necessary to understand the approach and the falsely polyphonic language

and very coherent of Gwen. This long homogeneous quest finds its energy

in the incompleteness that moves us, confuses us and fulfills us.

It begins with a rustling, a scratching, when the pencil runs

on the immaculate sheet, in the footsteps of a walker, as soon as the brush slips

closer to a dancer. But that sharp look can also scratch steel

or reach the size of a city, when the fabulous intuition takes him

to tattoo a 7 kilometer blue story on the body of an amnesic city,

orphan of the memory of its stones. 


Lines of force, line of life, but never line of flight in this artist of character,

will and conviction. The movement continues here, immediately, now… 

Because existence is barely big enough for that trip."
