Artist's Statement:
Works of P. Bergougnoux oscillate between the various worlds of the image, painting and photography, the past and the present, reality and the memories. One is far from a photographic work which would aim to document reality. P. Bergougnoux chooses to preserve or obliterate additional details; the image then consists of photographic fragments and fragments which are due to the gesture of the painter. He works on the memory and the questioning of its representation in report/ratio with its former work of painter from whom it draws the bases of his current work of photographer. That they take as a starting point banal objects or random places, its photographs speak to us about stories, memories, emotions and lost feelings.
