What is it like to be an artist in France today?
We often use the word "artist" to (dis)qualify someone who has no sense of reality, a dreamy person...it is quite derogatory. And conversely, it is word regularly used in advertising slogans as if it were an absolute to reach. Thus the artist works a form of fascination and repulsion. I personally try to live this word, to give it substance. It is a word for me smelling sweat.
