INTERVIEW WITH J-P SERGENT FOR THE DIVERSION MAGAZINE | MBAA | 18.12.2019
New interview
27 January 2020 | Duration: 2:18 | Besançon Fine Arts & Archeology Museum | Besançon | France

This exhibition is entitled: The Four Pillars of Heaven; it's a bit in reference to all tribal societies that always have a center of the world somewhere, they are the Axis mundis. The places where one can communicate with an elsewhere. We live today only on one horizontal plane and other cultures also live on a more vertical plane, (in other dimensions). We can also feel this in cathedrals, but this vertical plane is much higher within shamans for example.

A few words about Jean-Pierre Sergent's exhibition 4 PILLARS OF THE SKY in 90s
New video
10 November 2019 | duration: 1:30 | Besançon Fine Arts & Archeology Museum | France

Filmed par Franck Lallemand for the Est Républicain newspaper at MBAA on October 31st 2019 during the interview with Catherine Chaillet. I am a French New Yorker artist and have been working in Besançon since 2005. I present here at the Besançon Museum of Fine Arts, these large wall installations, in total, there are 72 paintings (80m2) and 18 panels in each corner of the museum. The title of the exhibition: The four pillars of the sky, which people can discover when they walk up these stairs. The title of the exhibition: THE FOUR PILLARS OF THE SKY. It is a reference to all mysticism and to the Axis mundis, those places where one can communicate with the gods or the spirits, My paintings speaks of life, rituals, rituals that are disappearing nowadays. We are talking a lot about biodiversity. But, at the same time, so many cultures are disappearing today! One can feel really lonely to face our destiny ! We can see Mayan, Egyptian and Inca civilization patterns. It's quite a mix! I work with anything that fills me with joy!
