Habiter, nager, léviter, méduser

Ideally reading this text would make you float

Se laisser porter par les vagues des émotions esthétiques,

Creuser dans le sol et se relier aux grands-mères qui nous ont inspirées,
Troubler les espaces, léviter,
Nager entre l’art et la vie,
Écrire en suivant les intuitions, les coïncidences et les expériences des œuvres,
Éviter les méduses et se laisser méduser.
