About the selection:

Il me faut tout oublier – I need to forget everything

What Philippe leaves behind is raw
And therefore very beautiful
Existential and very recognisable
That one phrase as a mirror to ourselves

‘Il me faut tout oublier’ – ‘I need to forget everything‘
(He who wanted to forget everything)
Actually, what he meant was ‘il me faut tout oublié’ – ‘I need all forgotten’
Starting anew with a clean slate, over and over again
We are not proud of our pain, our anxiety, our desires
Again and again we have to forget them to continue
