Guy Borremans
From November 5th 1973 to November 23rd 1973
Voyou, voyant, voyeur

"For Guy Borremans, photography is not an art; it is a lever to lift the heavy iron weight that is crushing modern man in search of himself; it is a tool to explore mind, the unconscious, the forbidden world that inhabits every man; it is a mirror to see one self and to show man to himself. Guy Borremans sees woman as a savior, and therefore will sometimes crucify her. He sees her as a full time partner but also as a cosmic creature, alien to his own race. A cosmic gag, never to stay in one spot, never to believe in one truth. Citizen of the world, but deeply rooted in Québec, Borremans also loves to think about Jacques Brel’s “flatland”, le pays plat. The exhibition is an inside voyage which Borremans begun twenty two years ago. Part is a dream of beautiful bodies, part is the social reality, never mixed together but always interfering upon each other."
