Presentation by Yellow Now:     [translation / adaptation L'Ascenseur Végétal]

Violence and gentleness, accidents of life or thirst for the absolute, the barks of beings in the heart of torment: the uncompromising writing with light can be immediately recognized, leaves a durable imprint and slowly and deeply percolates.

A world that radiates the desire for a wonderland that we would never have known, and whose disillusioned...
