by Guillaume Chiron
In OUPS ! Guillaume Chiron works to broaden the diversity of his ideas and illustrate the endless possibilities of the combined image. Chiron writes that “making collage is creating accidents, making things collide to tell stories.”
Chiron is an archivist who constantly builds a vast array of images. He collects what is his raw material, a corpus without limits, embracing all areas of the human race and its environment near or far. In this inventory work, we find a bit of that of the encyclopedist or researcher in the social sciences and humanities. In unexpected, sometimes disconcerting, always surrealist images, Chiron builds a personal and intuitive work in which he systematically finds a universal echo.
