An advisory role, especially and even coach: “I wanted to help them become aware of the institutional nature of what they are. “Technically, the intervention was therefore based on the verb, and aesthetic vision. On the aesthetics of the art it was back in shape. “They look” fool “because they are transported by the pilot boat: they have a jacket, they have no stripes … Yet these are the officers. They are very humble these people. They taste good. It is a beautiful work, it’s a job. “Couillon?
