« Réquillart’s images, which are anything but monumental or picturesque, unquestionably constitute an exercise in poetic reflection on the space we perceive, the space that harbours the experience of feeling alive. But they are also topographic studies of the moods of places. The role of the line in activating anonymous but living spaces, the survival of insignificant places and, ultimately, the exploration of the space of our own private subjectivity, reveal many coincidences with conceptual art and its exploration of a territory that is both physical and mental.Jack Kerouac said, referring to writing, that “Something that you feel will find its own form.” The poetics of Réquillart’s images is probably also the result of the skilful way he conjugates the tension between emotion and form, finding one inside the other. » Marta Gili, Director of the Jeu de Paume.
