Transcript of the interview of artist Jean-Pierre Sergent with Nicolas Surlapierre, director of Besançon Fine Arts & Archeology Museum, June 30 2023
New text
23 December 2022 | Besançon Fine Arts & Archeology Museum

The artist talks with Nicolas Surlapierre, Director of the Museum, about his mural installation: "The Four Pillars of Heaven" (80 m2) at the Museum of Fine Arts and Archaeology in Besançon on June 30 2023.

Nicolas Surlapierre: Jean-Pierre, I am quite happy that we are resuming these interviews, we did not do it some time ago, I would say almost two years ago. We were in the conference room of the Museum where we had presented a series of small, beautiful and erotic serigraphs. We had a discussion that lasted an hour and a half or two hours, I don't remember. And some time later, I had observed the videos and had found, how many elements that were said to me, directly, had escaped me...

Transcrition of the interview between Karine Bertrand & Jean-Pierre Sergent "Erotic Art of JPS"
New text
06 December 2022 | Besançon Artist Studio

PART 1/5

Karine Bertrand: Hello Jean-Pierre.

Jean-Pierre Sergent: Hello Karine.

KB: I am delighted to be here and thank you for your invitation.

JPS: You're more than welcome! 

KB: So, we're going to share this little moment together, so you invited me for my skills as a sexologist?

JPS: Yes, but not only that, I think you really appreciate my work... And so it was an idea to have a little exchange like that, a little informal, to discuss a little bit about my work and about life in general.

KB: So I'm delighted to be able to talk about your work and to give you my opinion as a sexologist, but also on the intimate (personal) view, your work really appealed to me; as you know, I really like your work. I was very touched by this work the first time I saw it. I am even more delighted to exchange with you. So, why was I touched by this work?

Jean-Pierre Sergent, texte Karma-Kali, Sexual Dreams & Paradoxes
New text
04 December 2022 | Besançon Artist Studio

Artist text statement's of the new series Karma-Kali, Sexual Dreams & Paradoxes 2022 :

KARMA-KALI, SEXUAL DREAMS & PARADOXES

"What light outside of life? Is it in or out of this mass of images? [...]
Transcendence demands - your fear of being torn apart."

The Art must smell the sperm and sulfur or both at the same time! Otherwise, it is only fragmentary and demonstrative representation of emotional and sentimental memories of times gone by and lost forever. 
The Art is the present. In the same way as our erotic dreams which reintegrate us, sometimes well in spite of us, in the incommensurable encompassing matrix of the Living. In the great mechanism: sex-life-birth-death: construction versus destruction...

Jean-Pierre Sergent, texte BARTLEBY OU DIRE NON À L'HUBRIS HUMAINE & SOUVENIRS DE MON AMI L'ÉRMITE AUGUSTE DE LA CENDRÉE
New text
03 August 2022 | Besançon Studio | France

    "Let us have contempt of any subjection,
    We, the sons of the vast universe, [...]
    Lords of the world, will go as we please
    Wherever we please, free of all control."1

I am writing this text at the end of July, beginning of August 2022, after having read the very beautiful novel Bartleby by Herman Melville, with the powerful afterword by Gilles Deleuze (about which it would be interesting to write also a small text). This reading strongly moved me and touched my deepest self and destabilized me. Perhaps, without a doubt, because of the beauty of the character, this Bartleby, refusing the world and who goes away, towards his death, without saying anything, without eating, without a complaint...

1  The Encatadas, The Barrington Island & the Buccaneers, Herman Melville

1/4 : I, THE INFLUENCES AND THE APPEARANCE OF EXTRA EUROPEAN ARTS IN MY WORK, NEW YORK YEARS (1993-2003)
Hello everyone, thank you for coming here to this beautiful Galerie de l'Orangerie. Christine Herrgott, who is a childhood friend of mine, welcomes us and I am going to give you a presentation with some of my works in relation to cultures that have interested me during my career. I've lived in New York quite a bit, I've also traveled to Mexico, Guatemala and I'm interested in a lot of cultures, what we call the 'primitive' (root) cultures, before we called them 'archaic' cultures. So this is how it will be: the conference is entitled: "Polyphonies: arts, cultures and civilizations"...
