Photographs of Hans Silvester - Text by Yvan Audouard
You may be familiar with those two stories....
Jean Nohain told me the fist one. He claimed to have seen the following ads in a village in Haute-Provence:
Great contest of boules
- First prize: a wonderful rabbit.
- Second prize: a beautiful rabbit.
- Third prize: a rabbit.
I can’t think of this third rabbit, without any speciality, without tenderness.
The second story I already told somewhere. But I can say that it is authentic since I saw, fifteen years ago, in Barbentane, writing on the window of a café:
Great contest of pétanque
- First prize: a bottle of pastis.
- Second prize: half a bottle of pastis.
- Third prize: a magnificent piece of art.
I do not want to use the word "surrealism" lightly, but if this text is not surrealistic, what do you need!
