Amidst the real, this common stock of signs and things that surround us, Thomas Bernadet extracts from the ordinary what could then become particular from a certain point of view. This personal vision is formed in the multitude of his cultural influences. His “look” lights on what all the “looks” might see. This may be a simple fragment of everyday life or in the order of a loan, from art history, for example. Thomas Bernardet thus samples from the real that which attracts his attention and allows it to mature in the form of “working documents”. Among what is collected intuitively, certain documents in time come to “reveal” themselves more as particular, as they say in photography, and bring out the reflection of an awareness that had escaped one’s attention.
