Le Turk is a character, an entity of his own, a singular and erratic concept. Attempting to sum him up in a brief and exhaustive biography would indeed be illusory. His very pseudonym is a mystery, which he keeps on maintaining. Ask him about this stage name and you perpetually will get a different answer, as if this the imagination of the spectator or of the interlocutor was more important than knowledge, as if falsehood was a creative process, stronger than reality, the truth’s lie. Shaping and modelling falsehood, to get closer to reality, subliming artefacts to create aestheticism, here lies no denunciation, no other goal than that of the artistic ideal of beauty. Beauty or ugliness by the way. Truth comes from dystopia: exposing humankind, naked, as he is, in a collapsing world. Ugly, beautiful, dirty, disgusting, nasty, sublime, extreme, he is attracted to contraries, no moderation, everything is excess. Prostitutes, mimes, pimps, clowns, people who committed suicide, social outcasts, absurd and pathetic beings moving on a stage where aesthetics are intensified. As a mirror into the face of the world, a reflection of ourselves, where the holder laughs about the subject, the object, the spectator who can only be enthralled, disturbed, moved, as it is all about him. Here, the nude is an ideal of beauty, it is the human condition, the aesthetic of immorality in a post-century world.He is himself a character of his own photographs, an active actor of his own mental drama, Le Turk, authentic, faithful, ostentatious, in a sacred and profane painting, God, Jesus, Bach, Elvis, Duchamp… He creates the world, in his own image, passionately, mentally. Excessive, DIYer, painter, decorator, tragedian, Le Turk is the most patriotic of the French photographers. He finds the inspiration for his scenes in French history, in the circus, the cabaret, in the Pigalle fashion, in Parisian revolutions, the “Paris Commune”from the Christ to the Burlesque. His world is inspired from cartoons, Jeunet movies and Otto Dix or Jerome Bosch’s paintings. And even if his photographs are purely staged, they constitute nevertheless stolen life scenes, a captured moment, a conquered instant, made in cardboard, wood, polystyrene and other accessories Le Turk is charming character, brilliant, passionate, authentic and in spite of everything, genuine.
