Joseph Lambert spent his days in the ‘S’ Grand Atelier writing, knitting “words,” signs understood by only him and attached to each other to form visual sentences, which form a stratum, a geological layer in the heart of the text as if the landscape stretched out all the while rolling itself up, in a twist. Text, texture, textile, weaving of signs. Present in the collections of the Musée national d’Art moderne (Pompidou), it was notably exhibited at the Maison Rouge, in 2015 and at the LAM (Villeneuve-d’Ascq), in 2018, in the at the LAM (Villeneuve-d’Ascq), in 2018, in the exhibition “Les refuges du récit”.

Joseph Lambert works in La “S” Grand Atelier, an art and cultural centre located in the Belgian Ardennes. There, with the patience of a monastic scribe, he writes an endless text in a language known only to himself. He strokes swirl in blues, yellows, and violets to create their magic… So many wavelengths with which Lambert lights up the world like a celestial body whose gravitational pull the reader-spectator suddenly feels.
The result perhaps calls to mind geological layers, or else a series of superimposed rainbows. Thus does Lambert’s writing-cum-drawing preserve its appearance of a coloured book of spells, whose secrets no one will ever be able to purloin.
