Only a moment; a moment of strength, of romance,
of glamour –of youth

… A flick of sunshine upon a strange shore,

the time
to remember,

the time for a sigh, and

-Joseph Conrad





Nirat, type de littérature thaïe, poésie lyrique.
Le règne du roi Narai (1656–88), considéré comme la période d’apogée de la littérature thaïe à la cour, voit le développement du genre littéraire et poétique dit « Nirat ».

Nirat, a genre of Thai literature, Lyric Poem
King Narai (1656–88) is seen as a golden era, in which writers were welcomed at the royal court, and new verse forms were developed; some of the most highly regarded nirat poems—a genre characterized by the themes of journeying, separation, and love-longing—date from this period, including Si Prat’s famous Nirat khlong kamsuan...

The Centre Intermondes building, is also known as Hôtel Pontard. In French context, an hôtel is a townhouse of a grand sort. The word Hôtel was reflected in the English mediaeval word “inn” for the townhouse of a nobleman, now surviving only as used in Inns of Court, particular meaning “personal” or “private” Whereas an ordinary maison (house) was built as part of a row, sharing party walls with the houses on either side and directly fronting on a street, an hôtel particular was often free-standing, and by the 18th century it would always be located entre cour et jardin, between the entrance court, the cour d’honneur, and the garden behind. The area of Hôtel Pontard is including a Renaissance building with two Cherry Blossom trees and 2 square gardens. The Hôtel Pontard building housed a bank in 1896, then a tourist office and remains a city landmark since 1748. And since 2004, the place is now used by Centre Intermondes, an international art residency dedicated to contemporary artistic creation, cultural meetings and gatherings. The installation presented on Thursday 11 September 2014, at Salle rouge (The red room) decorated to be the bank director’s office in 1896.

This is the song
song of innocence and experience

On some shallow story of deep love: How young Leander cross’d the Hellespont.
or a deep story of a deeper love: For he was more than over shoes in love,
over boots in love,
oh how he loved

Oh, he went to prison
in every country he set foot in
with all those beautiful Tattoos of ships and tattoos of tears
seduced by moon light
with frustrated passion
with wonderful words

located on his head

Eating ice cream in a desert dream
And getting lost in father’s singing
Swimming in the waves of intimacy
Too hot inside
Too hot outside

And then
the sun was never shine
and the fields were bleak and bare
and the ways were filled with thorns:
it was eternal winter there

This is the song
of all those criminal beautiful boys
No more of those

riches multitude


how long


In spite of all the love inside


there is the question




how long

Do you know that when you look at me.
It is a salvation.
I am spacing out with you,
feeling very warm in the mid night street car,
with the rhythms of your new song
and smoking a cigarette

Be on my side
I’ll be your side

It’s hard for me.

"In this way, images would no longer be seen as simple metaphors added simply to make up for the insufficiencies of conceptual language. Images of life would be at one with life itself. Life could be known no better than by the production of its images. The imagination, then, would be the best possible standpoint for meditating on life…Then everything becomes clear at once: it is the psyche’s drive that possesses the continuity of duration. Life is content to swing back and forth. It swing between need and the satisfaction of need…"

- Gaston Bachelard
