(1) Poetician artist according to Francis Willm’s definition is the one who creates work of art with poetic dimension.
(2) “Paxivist” artist according to Francis Willm offers an alternative way to activism and militantism. He commends peace, self love and others, to the world and Nature by producing poetic and collaborative works of art.
(3) “Continentor” according to Francis Willm is an artist who made an artistic continent which represent a physic and mental space where artistic experiences, meetings points and playgrounds spread. It ofers new cartographics, new mythologies and utopias. Francis Willm, Saraceno Tomas and Michelangelo Pistolleto take part undeniably in current “continentors” movement.
(4) The 8th continent is named Pinkania. It follows upon 5 others terrostrial continents (Africa, Europe, Americas, Australia, Asia). The 6th continent is componed by infobisity : images, informations, big data and numeric space overload. The 7th one is created plastic oceans and spatial buoy of garbage around Earth. The 8th continent is a reconciliation place for Human, itself and Nature. A sanctuary. In others words a possible artistic, ecologic and human geopolitics.
(5) The borning universal Man is the new universal consciouness emerging at the time of digital technoly, internet, globalization, transhumanism, clonage, green teck... and the twlilight of discriminations, wars, inequitable sharings, pollution...
8th continent will modelize each one’s best in accordance with nature. The Man of tomorrow will be a polymath in Pink.
(6) The Pink-Rose has to be understood as a prism, a state of mind, a filter.., a new horizon, a vector of poetry titing works of art. It’s also universal skin color cancelling the prejudicexs of racial colors. it leaves its current “kitsch” statut and gets shamanic and magical virtues. Pink operates like an ointment, a bandage, an elixir, a resurection, a regenerating, a lighthouse, a sign, an alert, a posture of resistance against inhumanity and ignorance.
(7) Banana Manifesto (BMF) is a collectif of artists, Pinkas wearing pink hood. They will be little soldiers with Pink artistic actions and interventions around the world. BMF has existed from 2008 to 2009. BMF Return re-started in 2013. The delivered message by BMF is “Pink,Punk, Peace”.
