About his work “Le déjeuner sur l'herbe” the artist said: ”The sun. The sky. The air. A girl. A drink of alcohol and allusions to the Monet painting. The sound is an easy dizziness of talk – as a small bird chirping or a usual conversation between women. Rapidly on everything. Not tiresome or obligatory. Nice. A bit embarrassing because of the steady male gaze “under the skirt”, which the warm wind also helps”.
