Bernard Moninot stays among the youngest exhibited artists at the Maeght Foundation and his artwork put face to face real and untrue spaces. During the 1970 he centers on urban ways of living then after he interests himself with the possibilities given by light towards pieces of steel. The exhibition "the open drawing" underlines the Moninot way of doing like a witness of his time does. He records the clouds he sees through the windows when he stands inside his own studio like a kind of comic strip. Bernard Moninot succeeds after catching memory with the help of a special chamber leading by the sentence "Only eyes are available crying" written in 1944 by the poet René Char and sending us back to bloody episods of the last ten years. At the end he materializes also the silence and builds skies far from reality.
