Jacques Villeglé - Publisher Fage - Ouvrage relié - 104 pages - Text in Français, English - Published in 2016

In Mémoires exhibition, on the four panels of the glass piédestal supporting the central sculpture – a replica of Fils d’acier – Chaussée des Corsaires (Saint-Malo), 1947 – he draws magic squares or spirals, and borrows from the art of pœtry by Victor Segalen, Tristan Corbière and Arthur Rimbaud.

This act of appropriation gives rise to a multitude of associations transposed into his socio-political Alphabet: a sort of very personal kaleidoscope of visual images of his past. But Jacques Villeglé has also decided to take on one of the 20th century’s great minds: that of Guy Debord. He freely diverts few pages of Mémoires, a late-1950s book by Debord and Asger Jorn, into four large frescos.
