The man who wrote that word upon the wall disappeared from the midst of the generations of man many centuries ago; the word, in its turn, has been effaced from the wall of the church; the church will, perhaps, itself soon disappear from the face of earth. It is upon this word that this book is founded.Victor Hugo, The Hunchback of Notre-Dame
There is so much to say about what is culture and what it brings to the word, to the community, to ourselves. Or should I say cultures in plural. Diverse, complex, the expression of an identity, of traditions and values. Cultures that divide us, but bring us together nonetheless.
If I were… An artistic movement?
The impressionism, because each point is worked with patience and brought together into a harmonious whole.
If I were… A painting?
Wanderer above a Sea of Fog, to contemplate the moutains for eternity.
If I were… A sculpture?
An Inu sculpture of a bear. A simple and refined aesthetic but fill with ancestral traditions.
If I were… A colour?
White. White as snow. As clouds. As the blank page or the snow-covered mountains.
