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!
