Extracts from the text by Benoît Blanchard:
(...) Bernard Jordan has tried almost all the formulas that we have seen flourish for some years now; with or without a venue, a large post-workshop wasteland, a hijacked flat, office in France and abroad, a small gallery slightly off the beaten track, unavoidable locations, omnipresence and discretion; then countless travels and heady journeys, trips to places where art is shown and produced (...)
(...) The obvious, or rather, the requirement in behind the obvious, is what the walls of his Parisian gallery reflect for those who make a habit to go there and return regularly. The bridges that Bernard Jordan builds between the astronomical exuberance of Marian Breedveld to the raw exuberance of Nina
Childress build this coherence of movement ; we find it between the quasi-industrial shaping of Vincent Barré, in the architectural vertigo of Christophe Cuzin, among the pictorial of Renée Levi, in the work of Philippe Richard, in the budding and almost creeping work of Elmar Trenkwalder. For one might think one was in a car: facing a large road, punctuated by road signs and flashing road, punctuated by road signs and flashing lights shining through the windows through which they reach us.
