Jean-Pierre Sergent : Here we are today, Sunday, September 29, 2019, I'm here with my friend Claudie Floutier, whom I met at the Besançon School of Fine Arts, who was my color teacher, which is quite rare, it hardly exists in the world now? CF : It doesn't exist anymore! JPS: So Claudie, I'll let you introduce yourself and then we're going to talk a little bit about our adventure please!
Claudie Floutier: To introduce myself, it goes back a long time! It goes back forty years!
Jean-Pierre Sergent: So in this part, I wanted to talk a little bit about art, language and the importance of art; because, well, we're in a society, which I think we could call post-cultural now! I think that art is disappearing completely! That's my humble opinion! For us, in our contemporary societies.
Claudie Floutier: You have to be anchored to be able to fly and there you go. And then, there's also something else and that, it goes back, I'm going from the cock to the donkey, to what I was saying earlier about you, about your incredible possibilities to be the technician at the same time, the one who loves nature and then the one who creates and who has a very big imagination and also the relation to the True Riches of Jean Giono, it is a very beautiful text, because there, you come back to something, it is you who gave me this text!
Jean-Pierre Sergent: Yes, yes, of course!
