The World Inside Out
Pauline Curnier Jardin according to Ana Teixeira Pinto
"On 11 February 1858, a sickly and undernourished child, who had contracted tuberculosis in her infancy, Bernadette Soubirous (Maria Bernada Sobeirons) had a vision whilst gathering firewood near the grotto of Massabielle in Lourdes. She claimed she saw “that” and that “that” was similar to a 12 year-old child, slightly younger than herself, slightly smaller than herself." Read more on TextWork.

Alain Séchas according to Orit Gat
"It’s August and I’m sitting at my desk. There are so many cultural specificities to this. Mid-July, I was in France, and the polite thing to do, the solution to the problem of conversation, was to ask about vacation. Plans: where, when. Beach, mountain. Family or friends, near or far."

TextWork aims to foster and support the work of artists active in the French art scene through the publication of critical essays produced by international writers. With this new program, the Ricard Foundation reinforces its commitment of over 20 years to supporting and disseminating this art scene. TextWork is initiated in partnership with the French Ministry of Culture.
