To "invite a monkey to tea” is to befriend our own mind-which is often compared to a drunken monkey for all its mad twists and turns. A wild monkey is full of irrepressible desires, and thus chases its own tail in its search for happiness!

Ce deuxième volume de pièces débute avec “Le Mollusque,” un long monologue du point de vue d’un escargot sur le malentendu existant autour de la définition du mot épicurien, qui le rend pas du tout heureux, puisqu'il est sur le point de se faire déguster. “Grisou en Atomiseur,” représente les premiers pas vers un théâtre psychologique, vers un soucis de vouloir capter une essence humaine.

Cette compilation de poèmes couvre une période très lointaine et errante de ma vie, enjambant près d’une dizaine d’années, de 1985 à 1994. À l’époque, si le temps n’a pas complètement corrompu ma mémoire, j’ étais grandement attiré par la poésie, celles de René Char, Blaise Cendrars, Louis Aragon, et les classiques aussi en passant de Villon à Racine et plus tard Verlaine, Rimbaud, Baudelaire..

Someday Bruce Conner will be considered as a pioneer of the post-modern aesthetic trend, along with the likes of Lawrence Stern or Marcel Duchamp.

La première fois que j'ai rencontré Nick Klaus, cela devrait être en 1993. A cette époque là, il ne devait avoir plus de 9-10 ans, mais déjà la vie soufflait en lui. Il riait en permanence, et rien ne pouvait freiner sa curiosité. Seulement, il était aussi énormément polisson, ce qui le mena dans une situation épineuse. D'après ce que je comprends, il s'était égaré à l'intérieur d'un album photo.
