Excerpt of the conversation between Robert Filliou (RF) and Irmeline Lebeer (IL), Flayosc, France, August 1976.
R.F: Look, this is important. Recherche sur la nuit. This piece of paper I consider as important as Research on the Origin: everything I think at night. Mon travail se situu quelque part entre faim de la fin et fin de la faim. [Untranslatable, but it means: ‘My work is situated somewhere between the hunger for the end and the end of hunger.’] It’s also in Research on the Night.
