Creation of the 28th intervention of CeCil’s Box, a showcase on rue du Curé in the city centre
My Dream Walked On Four Legs, My Dream Pushes Air is inspired from “The Coahoma County Wind Cults” by David Berman, author and musician from Williamsburg, Virginia, who became an indie rock cult figure with his band Silver Jews, before taking his own life in August 2019.
The creative process very often starts with a blank page Ð an empty space Ð before the inspiration starts flowing. Relatively straightforwardly at first and then it can become slightly bizarre, conjuring up an “absurdist landscape”. The artist himself might well be gone, but his words linger.
Inspired by the poem “The Coahoma County Wind Cults”

With its CeCiL’s Box project, Cercle Cité welcomes creations in one of its windows on rue du Curé. This project aims to present varied and original interventions to the public, and is also a way to support local creation by offering visibility to guest artists. These interventions are visible 7 days a week, day and night.
