"I CAME TO TELL YOU THAT I FIND YOU BEAUTIFUL NOW
(IN THE MOOD FOR RAPTURE)"
Stephen Sarrazin is an artist and curator of this exhibition that plays on a pop cultural conversation between Asia and elsewhere. His own work as an artist seeks to create metafictions - additional stories for characters already known to us from the cinema, art history and literature. His work weaves and links content, in a way that affects each creation. There is a new video, 'In the mood for Rapture', and the 'Kakejiku' decorative Japanese rolls, as well as a series of photographs, 'pretty in pink'. The music soundtrack was composed by Pascal Hare.

Jacques and Pierre share a country of origin,a homeland that belongs to no one and everyone: the French language. These men are lovers of words - those that are said or read, or proclaimed or murmured and whispered! Jacques and Pierre Bonnaffé Delye roam the places where you can listen to speak, say or read in order to hear the most beautiful words that we share. Jacques is a comedian who likes to recite the writers and poets. Jean-Pierre Verheggen the Belgian Jules Mousseron the minor through Jean-Christophe Bailly, the philosopher, and he says people listen. Pierre, author and storyteller, draws on the traditional repertoire of folk tales and legends to adapt and recreate and share their knowledge.
