Painter, draughtsman and video artist Christophe Berhault produces a series of small collage notebooks, culminating in an imposing scrapbook, Journal analogique, produced in just three months in 2007. The artist juxtaposes hundreds of printed images from the international press, both general and pornographic. The artist recycles images of well-known sportsmen and actors (the faces in medallions of Jude Law and Guillaume Canet), but also and above all anonymous people, animals, scenes of war or sex, with a predilection for certain colours (gold and red) and for anything bizarre, even almost unhealthy. In this tortured early twenty-first century, Berhault works from the seething reality of the world, on which he acts like a sort of voodoo revelator.
