Pichet Klunchun and myself brings two artists face to face who know nothing about each other, who have very different aesthetical practices and who both try to know more about the other, and above all about their respective artistic practices, despite the abyssal cultural gap dividing them.
Pichet Klunchun and Jérôme Bel enter into an open and sensitive dialogue that embraces not only their contrasting personal biographies but also problematic and delicate notions such as euro-centrism, inter-culturalism and cultural globalisation.
