Jan Saudek ou le culte d’une chair habitée

Par Laëtitia Bartholome-The 3Nines Arts 

Jan Saudek

 Jan Saudek, photographe tchèque de 83 ans né à Prague, est dérangeant. Très dérangeant. Longtemps incompris, il porte pourtant, greffé en lui, le sens des corps, entre transgression et anticonformisme, ce qui a toujours généré peurs paniques ou rejets violents. Autodidacte et viscéral, il est un des grands créateurs de la photographie contemporaine qui a exposé plus de 400 fois et dont les œuvres ont intégré les plus importantes collections mondiales. « Il communique par le sang » n'a cessé de répéter Pierre Borhan. Or, « l'art n'est-il pas fait [de prime abord] pour troubler ? » (Georges Braque).


Un monde controversé empreint de dramaturgie


Sans conteste, Jan Saudek est un artiste marginal, en marge, dans la marge, qui photographie avec ses tripes, sa chair et sa peau. Il a connu l'extrême pauvreté, subi les camps de concentration et la censure. Néanmoins, il demeure investi, habité, loin de toute forme d'intellectualisme ; « sans attitude morale ni jugement, il conjugue au fil des prises de vues, les mises en scène et le naturel, le quotidien comme l'éternel, il se veut l'observateur d'un monde énigmatique et toujours précaire. » (Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret). « Je cherche à faire le portrait de l'âme » a-t- il toujours proclamé. « Pour moi, une photographie doit vous couper le souffle avec quelque chose de complètement nouveau. » « Toute son œuvre recèle une atmosphère dramaturgique. Le photographe cherche à provoquer notre émotion devant la rage de la vie. » (Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret)
Jan Saudek est un artiste qui se complaît dans l'outrance parfois obscène et la démesure. Démesure d'une création qui déborde le réel et dépasse la réalité. Un artiste qui ose la démesure, l'exploite, l'exprime et la rend palpable. « Jan Saudek affiche une impudeur artistique qui confère à ses œuvres une provocante beauté (.). Il aime se servir de l'artifice ; il adopte volontiers les couleurs kitsch ou l'atmosphère surannée des cartes postales érotiques du 19ème siècle. » (Michel Tournier)
Évoquer Jan Saudek, c'est pénétrer un monde confiné, colorié dans l'étroitesse d'une cave, sorte de huis-clos, aux murs suintants et délabrés. Un univers hors-norme et théâtralisé. Un univers à la fois tragique, comique, burlesque, vaudevillesque, entre breloques, strass et peinturlures. Un univers à part, délirant et déluré, expression de sa propre esthétique transgressive et de ses propres codes sulfureux.

Le corps magnifié, source d'inspiration


Son œuvre, puissante et débridée, exacerbe non seulement la sensualité, mais témoigne surtout de la récurrente obsession de l'artiste face au temps destructeur. Car, en mettant en scène ses modèles, le photographe, au-delà d'illustrer la grandeur corporelle, aborde des questions éminemment existentielles autour de la vie, la mort et les effets dévastateurs du temps sur les êtres vivants.
« Jamais distant de ses douleurs, Jan Saudek est partagé entre les forces de vie et de mort. L'inexorable est là. Mais la pulsion d'éros demeure aux limites de la jouissance ou de l'abattement. » (Jean-paul Gavard-Perret)
Pour Jan Saudek, devenir photographe a très tôt signifié « faire des images sur les relations humaines (.) ; les corps nus avec leur potentiel d'amour, de mort et de désir. » Cet « humaniste baroque » voue ainsi une véritable obsession pour les corps, féminins en particulier. « Je déshabille la femme pour qu'elle soit éternelle. » Une femme kaléidoscopique, déifiée, violentée, insoumise, objet de désir, de répulsion, de plaisir, ravagée peu à peu par le temps qui passe. Il crée, « à travers les corps, un univers plastique capable de pister le furtif, l'invisible, l'inavoué » (Jean-paul Gavard-Perret). Entre opulence, chair et rondeur, l'artiste suscite le désir, dans toute sa crudité ostentatoire et sa vérité nue. Il expose des corps, tout en émotion, des corps imparfaits et vulnérables, sublimés dans la beauté comme dans la laideur, mêlant ainsi un érotisme violent à un érotisme plus tendre.
Car Jan Saudek est avant tout et surtout un photographe brut et sauvage qui « signe ses œuvres de son poids de chair personnel » (Michel Tournier) et qui « [a su véritablement créer] un art photographique qui nous arrache à la bêtise du conformisme. Nous oblige à affronter ensemble, comportements inculqués, impulsions réprouvées. Qui nous met en demeure d'être humain. » (Pierre Borhan).

Traquant continuellement l'écorce des êtres, des êtres au-delà du paraître, au-delà du temps, au-delà des carcans, au-delà des fantasmes et des pulsions, impulsions, répulsions, Jan Saudek nous propose, certes, des créations souvent controversées mais toujours instinctives, passionnées et courageuses. Il nous donne à voir une œuvre sexualisée, personnelle et troublante qui peut choquer ou émouvoir mais ne laisse jamais indifférent. « Ôtant nos vêtements – souvent impersonnels – Saudek réveille notre chair anesthésiée. Ôtant le masque de la peau, il lacère la fausse quiétude des sens. » (Pierre Borhan) Or, «ne sommes-nous pas d'abord nos interdits alors que nous devrions être nos désirs ? » (Pierre Borhan).

  Jan Saudek or the worship of an inhabited flesh

By Laëtitia Bartholome-The 3Nines Arts 
Jan Saudek

Jan Saudek, photographer tcheck  83 years old, born in Prague is disturbing. Very disturbing. Long misunderstood, he is wearing, however, grafted in him the direction of the body, between transgression and conformism, which has always generated panics or violent releases fear. self-educated and visceral, it is one of the great creators of contemporary photography which exposed more than 400 times and whose works have incorporated more importantworld collections. "It communicates with the blood "has repeatedly Pierre Borhan. But "art is not made [first reason] to disturb? " (Georges Braque).


A world controversial full of drama


Undoubtedly, Jan Saudek is a marginal artist, on the sidelines, in the margin, which photograph with his guts, his flesh and his skin. He experienced extreme poverty suffered the concentration camps and censorship.Nevertheless, it remains invested, lived far from any form of intellectualism; "Without moral attitude or trial, it combines over the shooting, the staging and the natural, everyday as the eternal, he wants the viewer with an enigmatic and always precarious world. "(Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret). "I try to make a portrait of the soul" has t he always proclaimed." In my opinion, a photograph is breathtaking with something completely new. "" All his work conceals a dramatic atmosphere. The photographer tries to provoke our emotion before the rage of life. "(Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret)
Jan Saudek is an artist who revels in the sometimes excessive and obscene démesure. Excessiveness of a creation that goes beyond the real and beyond reality. An artist who dares to excess, exploits, expresses and makes palpable. "Jan Saudek displays an artistic immodesty that gives his works a provocative beauty (.). He likes to use artifice; he readily adopts the kitsch colors and the atmosphere quaint erotic postcards of the 19th century. "(Michel Tournier)
Recall Jan Saudek is to enter a confined world colored in the narrow cellar, sort of behind closed doors, walls soaker and dilapidated. UNo universe unconventional and theatrical. A world that is both tragic and comic, burlesque,vaudeville, between charms, rhinestones and daubed. A world apart, crazy and cheeky expression of his own transgressive aesthetic and its own sulfur codes.

The body magnified inspiration


His work, powerful and unrestrained, exacerbates not only sensuality, but largely reflects the recurring obsession of the artist facing the destructive time. For, by staging its models, photographer, beyond illustrate body size, addresses eminently existential questions about life, death and the devastating effects of weather on living things.
"Never remote from pain, Jan Saudek is shared between the forces of life and death. The inexorable is there. But the Eros instinct remains the limits of enjoyment or dejection. "(Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret)
Jan Saudek, become a photographer very early meant "make images of human relationships (.); the naked bodies with their potential of love, death and desire. "This" baroque humanist "and has a real obsession with the body, women in particular. "I undress the woman to be eternal. "A kaleidoscopic woman deified, abused, rebellious, object of desire, repulsion, pleasure, gradually ravaged by the passing time. It creates "through the body, a plastic universe capable of tracking stealth, invisible, unacknowledged" (Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret). Between opulence flesh and roundness, the artist creates a desire in all its ostentatious crudeness and its naked truth. It exhibits body, while emotion, imperfect and vulnerable body, sublimated in beauty and in ugliness and mixing violent eroticism to a more tender eroticism.
For Jan Saudek is first and foremost a raw and savage photographer "sign his works with his personal flesh weight" (Michel Tournier) and that "[knew truly create] a photographic art that tears us from the stupidity of conformity. Forces us to face together, behavior inculcated, reproved pulses. Who challenges us to be human. "(Pierre Borhan).

Tracking continuously bark beings, beings beyond sound, beyond time, beyond the shackles, beyond the fantasies and urges, impulses, repulsion, Jan Saudek proposes certainly creations often controversial but always instinctive, passionate and courageous. He shows us a sexualized work, personal and disturbing that can shock or disturb but never leaves indifferent. "Taking off our clothes - often impersonal - Saudek awakens our numb flesh. Removing the mask of skin, it defaces the false peace of the senses. "(Pierre Borhan) Now"born are-us notour first banned when we should be our desire? "(Pierre Borhan).

83 years old, born in Prague is disturbing. Very disturbing. Long misunderstood, he is wearing, however, grafted in him the direction of the body, between transgression and conformism, which has always generated panics or violent releases fear. self-educated and visceral, it is one of the great creators of contemporary photography which exposed more than 400 times and whose works have incorporated more importantworld collections. "It communicates with the blood "has repeatedly Pierre Borhan. But "art is not made [first reason] to disturb? " (Georges Braque).<br></p><p><br><strong data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="strong">A world controversial full of drama</strong></p><p><strong data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="strong"><br></strong>Undoubtedly, Jan Saudek is a marginal artist, on the sidelines, in the margin, which photograph with his guts, his flesh and his skin. He experienced extreme poverty suffered the concentration camps and censorship.Nevertheless, it remains invested, lived far from any form of intellectualism; "Without moral attitude or trial, it combines over the shooting, the staging and the natural, everyday as the eternal, he wants the viewer with an enigmatic and always precarious world. "(Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret). "I try to make a portrait of the soul" has t he always proclaimed." In my opinion, a photograph is breathtaking with something completely new. "" All his work conceals a dramatic atmosphere. The photographer tries to provoke our emotion before the rage of life. "(Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret)<br>Jan Saudek is an artist who revels in the sometimes excessive and obscene démesure. Excessiveness of a creation that goes beyond the real and beyond reality. An artist who dares to excess, exploits, expresses and makes palpable. "Jan Saudek displays an artistic immodesty that gives his works a provocative beauty (.). He likes to use artifice; he readily adopts the kitsch colors and the atmosphere quaint erotic postcards of the 19th century. "(Michel Tournier)<br>Recall Jan Saudek is to enter a confined world colored in the narrow cellar, sort of behind closed doors, walls soaker and dilapidated. UNo universe unconventional and theatrical. A world that is both tragic and comic, burlesque,vaudeville, between charms, rhinestones and daubed. A world apart, crazy and cheeky expression of his own transgressive aesthetic and its own sulfur codes. <br><br><strong data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="strong">The body magnified inspiration</strong></p><p><strong data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="strong"><br></strong>His work, powerful and unrestrained, exacerbates not only sensuality, but largely reflects the recurring obsession of the artist facing the destructive time. For, by staging its models, photographer, beyond illustrate body size, addresses eminently existential questions about life, death and the devastating effects of weather on living things.<br>"Never remote from pain, Jan Saudek is shared between the forces of life and death. The inexorable is there. But the Eros instinct remains the limits of enjoyment or dejection. "(Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret)<br>Jan Saudek, become a photographer very early meant "make images of human relationships (.); the naked bodies with their potential of love, death and desire. "This" baroque humanist "and has a real obsession with the body, women in particular. "I undress the woman to be eternal. "A kaleidoscopic woman deified, abused, rebellious, object of desire, repulsion, pleasure, gradually ravaged by the passing time. It creates "through the body, a plastic universe capable of tracking stealth, invisible, unacknowledged" (Jean-Paul Gavard-Perret). Between opulence flesh and roundness, the artist creates a desire in all its ostentatious crudeness and its naked truth. It exhibits body, while emotion, imperfect and vulnerable body, sublimated in beauty and in ugliness and mixing violent eroticism to a more tender eroticism.<br>For Jan Saudek is first and foremost a raw and savage photographer "sign his works with his personal flesh weight" (Michel Tournier) and that "[knew truly create] a photographic art that tears us from the stupidity of conformity. Forces us to face together, behavior inculcated, reproved pulses. Who challenges us to be human. "(Pierre Borhan).<br><br>Tracking continuously bark beings, beings beyond sound, beyond time, beyond the shackles, beyond the fantasies and urges, impulses, repulsion, Jan Saudek proposes certainly creations often controversial but always instinctive, passionate and courageous. He shows us a sexualized work, personal and disturbing that can shock or disturb but never leaves indifferent. "Taking off our clothes - often impersonal - Saudek awakens our numb flesh. Removing the mask of skin, it defaces the false peace of the senses. "(Pierre Borhan) Now"born are-us notour first banned when we should be our desire? "(Pierre Borhan).</p></div><div class="ebd-block " data-type="html" > </div><div class="ebd-block " data-type="text" style="text-align: justify; font-family: Georgia;"><p><strong data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="strong">Sources around Jan Saudek:<br></strong><br><br>Wikipedia page of Jan Saudek : <a title="" href="https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Saudek" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_Saudek </a><br><br>Webite official of JanSaudek : <a title="" href="https://www.saudek.com/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://www.saudek.com/ </a><br><br><br><strong data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="strong">Sur social networks: <br></strong><br>Instagram : <a title="" href="https://www.instagram.com/saudekjan/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://www.instagram.com/saudekjan/ </a><br><br>Facebook : <a title="" href="https://www.facebook.com/Jan-Saudek-569439276417753/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://www.facebook.com/Jan-Saudek-569439276417753/ </a><br><br><br><strong data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="strong">In the press and on the web: </strong> <br><br>Short biography : <a title="" href="http://www.premiere.fr/Star/Jan-Saudek" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://www.premiere.fr/Star/Jan-Saudek </a><br><em data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="em">Eros and Thanatos, photos inconvenient:</em> JSaudek year (1935), Czech Republic by Enki Dou<br><a title="" href="https://enkidoublog.com/2013/07/01/bonne-fete/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://enkidoublog.com/2013/07/01/bonne-fete/ </a><br><br><em data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="em">Photography: FNAC collector by Natacha Wolinski</em> in Fine Arts, No. 218, 1stJuly 2002. p. 24<br>It is almost inevitable, pushing the door of a Fnac, falling on a photo exhibition of William Klein, Max Pam and Jan Saudek.<br></p><em data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="em">The strange world of Czech photographer Jan Saudek</em> in PhotoNo. 378 April 2001<br><br><em data-verified="redactor" data-redactor-tag="em">Saudek </em>by Renata Kalenska in Courier International No. 494 of 20 April 2000. pp. 54-55<br>The great Czech photographer Jean Saudek is rather stingy interviews.
