Poem in automatic writing about « Artist »
The plant is illuminated at night by strong spotlights and is visited on the day, in its night. I’m starting to feel legitimate as an artist myself. Personal exhibition of recent video works. It’s as simple as that, and the work too is, not to protect oneself, but to pursue the quest for freedom. Work in places that are important to you. The visit of an empty Paris apartment, where several people lived successively. It’s just a matter of the act. Being an artist is not a state, it is a decision of each moment. The Maison des Pratiques Artistiques Amateur (MPAA) in Paris proposes each year a “Territory Project” around one of its five sites. They all have strong desires, but they feel alone and abandoned. I participated in the roundtable / lectures as an artist and cultural player. The artist has to take a chance so that there’s something that’s just a little bit interesting. The risk.
