I LOVE WRITTING FOR PEOPLE I LOVE

Synopsis

“I love long-term adventures. 2006, 2015 : Nico Muhly at the Opera de Paris, conducting Philip Glass’ music for “Amoveo” in 2006, composing “Clear, Loud, bright, Forward” in 2015. Meanwhile : shocks, conversations, Paris, New-York, unrevealed images, still or in movement, and long letters that I wrote to him for almost 10 years with invisible ink. « I love writing for people I love », these are Nico’s words in a honest non-innocent statement published in May 2015. Or how an artist deals – or not – with his extreme artistic demand that hurts his soul, his life, and his beloved ones. The naked truth. Touchée. I love writing for people I love. Thus this deep desire : drawing a portrait as a whisper, as a dream, unfinished of course. A few silhouettes single out in the crowd of people you meet on the way; they are strong and fragile, inspiring. An elliptic journey. In the center : Nico Muhly, facing the camera. I guess it’s clear enough.”
