English version ENgLISH VErSION For our British readers, Signé Barrière offers a selection of translated texts in English. Happy Reading ! Sean Landers’camouflages Page 4 From his native America, this painter-photographer-director casts his penetrating gaze on the world. His universe lies in the detail ; he plays with codes, ‘truths’and the Zeitgeist. Free. Free as a stag on the edge of the shelter of a wood and from the risk of the open field in front of him. Free to say who he is and where he’s going. Free of fashion. Free to intervene (or not) in the ties that bind a clan together. Entitled Mac Phee, Sean Landers created this spectacular stag in 2009, as part of a series of paintings dedicated to North American mammals. The tartan, the colours used on this animal’s natural dress, the ancestral geometry of fabrics in the colours of life’s strength and continuity, were tested in Scotland long before Rome was an empire. The tartan protecting this famous stag isn’t a camisole or even a coincidence  : it’s like a tattoo, a symbol of commitment, and especially not something that covers a wound. Serving freedom Although this fabric was used to illustrate your status in Scotland, this stag remains free to wear it. Or to choose not to. Many commentators have discussed the quest for identity, for differentiation in this work. In what sense ? A desire to seem or to be ? Born in Massachusetts in 1962, Sean Landers has been presented as the American artist whose discipline is made to serve freedom. His work with words and monumental paintings on texts highlight the graphic expression of writing while also noting the passage of time. « I like moments of connection, » summarises Landers. He mixes canvas and video with his other techniques in a dance that does not necessarily favour aestheticism. This painter-photographer-film-maker demands a way of seeing, a perspective, a concern for detail that invents an unexpected work, such as a thread escaping from a ball of wool. His famous « moments of connection » suggest the calligraphy of (block) calendars housing particular moments, a comma, a capital letter, a crossing out, a dash or a paragraph forman opus. His entire « artistic claim » is here, in the same way as it also features in his unexpected comparison of the appreciation of his work to tasting a vodka-champagne cocktail  : « Everyone chooses to recognise and prefereither the corpulence of the vodka, or the lightness of the champagne. But neither one, nor the other would be related without having found them together in a glass. » That said, Sean Landers’apparent detachment camouflages a determination  : a refusal to be disenchanted with or to resist the passing of time. Universal themes are perceived in the world’s landscape, like a stag bordering a wood. Sean Landers’Studio - studio@seanlanders.net 88 Hiver 2012/2013 Signé Barrière
Now bearding The hairy-chinned are back in style. What is that can be reassuring, slick, imperial, pointy, well-balanced, bushy, thick, audacious or greying - but never dull. Hmmm ? Ah, of course - a beard ! It’s not that every second man in town has suddenly discovered the power of facial hair. But the return of the beard among men aged 20 to 60 has been nothing short of spectacular. They are all over the place. Even adorning the visage of a former French president, who finds our surprise amusing. In advertising, the cocktail of « nature + energy + rugby solidarity = Chabal, » after the iconic bearded French rugby player, was a trend setter amongst casting agents (for male models) and photographers for the leading fashion houses. A formof silken virility, expressed through a well cared-for hairy look, is back in fashion. It would seem that in order to sell cars, fat-free yogurts, phones or financial products, nothing beats the reassuring and bushy strength of well-manicured whiskers. But how long will it all last ? Retail outlets and websites devoted to cutting edge products are full of user tips and instructions, complete with illustrations or photos of men - not necessarily tough guys, but all smiling at us - who haven't haven’t seen a razor in Page 22 quite a while, although their hairy chins have been well-styled and groomed. Now that aftershave products are on the way out, at least temporarily, we’ve also got bearded men promoting the qualities of creams and other cosmetics designed to care for two-day, two-week or all-year-round growth. The days of the shaving brush, the smooth glide of the cutthroat and the calming alum block are over. Shaving, whether electric or by hand, is no longer mandatory. No more will we hear  : « Son, you’ll soon be shaving. » Nowadays, it’s time to acknowledge what could well be the single non-common English version denominator between men and women  : hair on the chin and cheeks. These days, leading advertising agencies and consultants are more interested than ever in the conclusions reached by those who analyse individual and group behaviour in society. Fashion aside, what other changes is the return of the whisker concealing ? PaulineC., who keeps a watchful eye on her fellow citizens’infatuations and trends - 64 million French men and women out of 6 billion inhabitants of planet earth... - has her own theory on why the beard is back  : « Far less a shield or a screen, the beard is the symbol of the oversublimation of the male. Women have taken everything away from men  : power and its physical manifestations, expertise, knowing how to organise and reassure. They have taken everything, except their hormones. So men are displaying what cannot be taken from them  : their beards. » To take care of and combthis « new beauty accessory » (this also applies to those not willing to giveup the clean-shaven, smooth sensation), fashion dictates you take a seat in the barber’s chair. Yes, they still exist (*). Or find compassion in the bond with your barber, as a « refuznik » of the hairy revolution. A word of caution, however  : the barber’s art is becoming more of a lost art in hairdressing schools. You may therefore find it something of a hairy experience. Clémence, age 8  : « How many hairs do you need to make a beard ? « Facial hair. What about the thoughts of the female species on the subject ? A few, sometimes bold, but always clear-cut, insights. Marie-Antoinette, age 84, dreamer. « My earliest memory is the cheek of one of my parents’friends. Lovely and soft, like cashmere, it smelt like a bar of soap wrappedup in tissue paper. This man looked like the King of England. A George, but which one ? I can’t remember... Oh yes  : George VI, I think. » Clémence, age 8, budding statistician. « I don’t like it when it’s spiky. But I’d like to know how many hairs you need to make a beard. » 1 Frédérique, age 38, hirsute. « No more stubble ! Would you 1 like to kiss a sea urchin ? » 11 Marianne, age 40, inveterate giggler. « I came round to the h hairy face eventually. But it was a close shave... » Nathalie, age 27, rebel with a memory for faces. « You should si always look at what there is above the beard  : his eyes. H His eyes are what counts. The rest is often nothing more than ai a cover. » Pauline, age 28, shrewd. « Women have taken everything away from men. Their hair is all they’ve got left to confirmtheir identity. Having said that... Hairpiece nights have been kn (known to take place in New York  : where women are allowed to wear false beards ! » Alix, age 23, in love. « I’ve had three moped accidents. None of them was serious but I found one little detail disturbing  : every time, the driver of the car that ran into me or knocked me down was... bearded. I sold my moped. And I’m in love with a guy with blonde hair and blue eyes who has a lumberjack beard. » Brigitte, age 56, fatalist. « My father had a beard. My brother has a beard. My son has a beard. My son-in-law has a beard. And my husband shaves twice a day. » (*) La barbière de Paris  : 14 rue Condorcet - 75009 Paris Bookings 01 45 26 92 45 - www.labarbieredeparis.com Hiver 2012/2013 Signé Barrière 89
