                                                           That is :            EVY 

An interviewof Evy, an artist in Frontignan-plage
Evy is a significant and original contemporary plastician artist.

In this interview, she opens her pure heart and you will discover a
complex character.

Her creation in general remains a mirror which reflects the crisis of societyand expresses a trenchant artistic opinion.
For Evy, our Planet an dits water are in danger. Taking this position becomesan expansive and offensive CRY ; she had the courage in 2003, to open her own galery The « Evy Museum Galery », which is a sincere base of contestingin la Bergerie, in Frontignan-Plage
                                                                    
Let’s listen to this unusual interview because she has transformed it into
"cries and whispers”

 Pollution, a worldwide plague

Evy - An architectural,sculptural, pictural « CRY »

I t was in 1982 that by my artistical process, I started to give my attention to environment phenomenons.
I wanted to attract the « Man’s » attention
And to change a forseeable

« End of an irresponsible world »
Into a sudden awareness of a
«« Better world »»

The moment is serious !
More and more serious for our planet.

A short biography 
 
Gtan grand daughter of an engineerin the department of the Civil Engineering, geologist, scholar, mathematician, Jules Le Nestour.
[ Buily aqueductsin Asia ]; and of Françoise Cros, an architect, in Colombes etc.
Grand daugnter of an artist, Bernardine Le Nestour.
Gtand grand daughter of Flore-Vallée Allendy, an architect in Paris, Meudon...
Armand Allendy's grand daughter, an architect in Paris, an avenue of which is calledafter his name, then in Rennes and St Brieuc.
 
 
First of all, a mother
 
* Mother of my brothers and sisters ! I am the eldest of a family of seven children. I wasborn just before World War II [ I found myself my dear father's body, hanged at home. I was only five and a half years old. Amost simutaneously, my mother gave birth to her third child. Worried about my brother and me, the hospital responsibles took the decision to place us in the "Child Welfare", without informing my mother. This moment of my life was very painful for me.. I had become the little Nobody had to tell my mother where we were situated ; I twas by an indiscrete action that sheknew it and could get us back. My mother married again, very badly for herself and more badly for me / My Cosette's life was more and more my fate.
From the age of 6, I took upon myself the mother's part, so as to assist mine. First, she had two children, then according ro the births and so did I during all their teenage. I felt myself concerned and I actively assumed this condition of mother as if they were my own children. Thanks to me, I received them at home, both for the holidays and to help them for their exams. One of them had even been living with us at full time her bachelorship.]
 
* Mother of a family. I had myself four children and ten grand children - always great joys for me. 
 
*** Wishing to prepare a happy future to  them, I bacame an absolute militant of our planet's protection. To act, in my own way, is undoubtedly utopian. But I can't be unconcerned by its evolution :
Our actions determine our life and all our descendants.
My family's life, of which I am responsible, is automatically linked to it.
 
                                                                                                    Dédoublement
 
 
 My positions about political parties :
 
Ihave never accepted it is necessary to invent a so called Ecologist party, so as to secure Nature's protection. The importance to safeguard it is evident. Moreover, they will have to give inelutably theit attention to our devepment's defense and to worry about our earthman's life. It is our first duty toward our descendants. Our generations are responsible of their inheritance.
 
" A healthy life "
 
Mankind can't forget the essential thing.
 
" He is nature himself "
 
Man destroys himself. A lesson .... but to whom ?
The earthman ! A chimaera, a mirage ! He will only have lived to destroy him.
What an irony !

Summary of a part of my life
 
A car accident in 1972, coma, memory loss, reaching to say yhe things conversely than I thought, without my care. I was afraid, very afraid, " to fall on the head of my family, of my children ", this would have been very seriously. I stopped to handle all that means bureaucracy and I hoped to be for the moment, only.
In order to escape from the hole where I have felt, I set up my first Association, wheremy role was that one of President, nobody being in danger because it. I had to fight with my recent weakness, so I have fought. As president, Imust assume some responsibiliies : liveliness, to elaborate speeches and after that try to read them. I have given myself ti this, forgetting the time.
** The Association of the < Ateliers d'Art du Bocage > it exists 12 years

Unforunatey, my samples of fighter were not enough ti give me back the role I have disrupted. That was the reason for which I leave Avranches and I gone to : Le Raincy, near Paris where I set up a work shop.
The Creation became my only refuge.

 ° The Luck !!!... Angry at Evy °
 
During the Gulf War :
 
- I had to expose with some other artist in a basement Gallery, in a very big Restaurant near des Champs Elysees, behind l'Elysee. Everything was ready for this exhibition but unfortunately the Gulf War was declared and the meetings around l'Elyseeprohibited. There fore it was necessary to find another Mecena to pay the exhibition location.
 
1996 at Neuilly near Paris :
- I had to expose in a big Water Society.
- To the representatives meet, they asked me to present great works on the subject of :
<< WATER >>
 
- I proposed them to unfold on the screen, the architectural plans of the :
<< EVY FOUNTAIN >>
 
Among the architecture plans, there were some write pages where I mentioned the word :
<< PURE WATER >>
 
This was my big mistake ! The exhibition was cancelled in the last moment ,
I tried to change for example in :
<< POTABLE WATER >>
 
But the company's representatives were very afraid because of my spontaneity around the convened and invited journalist.
 
** Strange, their reactions make me understand that it is the time for action and this incite me to write to the
 
- PRESIDENT of REPUBLIC  - Mr. Jacques CHIRAC
 
Mr. Jean DE BENGY :
He become my godfather, artistc level, when I had my workshop on Le Raincy, near Paris. This man of great culture was on that moment
 
- Pricipal Inspector and after that General Inspector to the Ministry of Culture.
 
 - Through his presence all the big exhibition from Paris became a mark of quality
We had together many discussions regarding my creation and he told me that my creation is one of a special one, being new and very interesting. He said me :
< As soon as I will retired, I will organise an exhibition only for you, where I would like to expose only your works. You will see, your works will be quickly recognised, trust me and just wait ! >
- For all these he accepted to be the godfater of the :
 
EVY - MUSEUM - GALLERY
 
A srtoke, three days before the day < J > prevent him to come.
After only one month my mentor was able to come to Mas.
Mr. DE BENGY, brought the files to hold promise :
he hold that ** the EVY exhibition, will be quickly made in Paris he involved and he was very close. Some later his deat made me loss a great friend, that one who understood me for a long time. This finished all my projects.
 
2007 - To Frontignan, sorrow..... WHY ?  WHY ?.. :
                                  A history, among others... likes this ! Starting with year 2005
 
- How to make that, none of the contacted local newspapers didn't mentioned the article sent by me, with the date and the program of the exhibition ?
( For all the events in the Region, these articles are without payement )
- Why this Annoucement... which was paid and the payment has been accepted, not agreed local newspaper and provides in Frontignan :
 
<< *** Special open of  °° EVY MUSEUM GALLERY °° 
- Theme : - A cried for man !
- Paints, Sculptures, etc. On 7th of July - 15h 30 - 21h and on 8th of July 10h - 20h.
- Mas EVY - Imp. des Plaisanciers FRONTIGNAN. >> 
 
- These < forgotten > articles were have been studied for your information ***
 
 
 
 << Art is a youth bath >>
 
Sometthing pushes me creating in all fieldq, going as far as to give a new life to an objet of rebus. A journalist, who knows me very well, wrote faimess, that I am an explorer,. I true, I like to drive in myself, inventing new ideas, I cannot be bent under the constraints, having as a pretext that one style of my works is well selling. The isolation seems to me to be destructive, but this didn't prevent me to work on my chosen subjects. Only diversity can be positive, can enrich myself that allowed me to evolve from drawing to painting, from relief to ....from sculpture to engraving and change very often the supports, going till the architectural projects.
The creation is essential for me : it released me from all cares.
For this reason I cannot create than free.
 
Main defect :
 
If it is one ! To be unable to accept the lie, not react immediately, what put me in equivocal situations.....underserved.
 
Main quality :
 
hishing, with a great sincerity, to all earthlings, much sun in their hearts because there should be !
 
Travels :
 
It was a time when some Laboratories offered to medical corps travels, in order to make them loyal, I suppose. Being Sagittarius, I thing you will realise that I dad not have as to miss such a chance. So, I travelled a lot, I have felt that each, free or even unconscious enriched by the benefits of these nice and very gratefully contacts.
