Patrick Corillon "Three stories about Oskar Sertir"


Brussels Belgium


Brussels Regional Parliament



Three short stories with, as the protagonist, the imaginary character Oskar Serti are set in three different places, giving them the dimension of Patrick Corillon’s imagination. The first is occupying the site of a speaker's corner in the garden: the upturned fruit crate witnesses the famous speeches in the rain that Oskar Serti was unable to give for lack of an audience. The second takes the form of a bookcase shelf in the boudoir, containing novels usurped by their presumed authors, which should have made Oskar Serti famous. The third recounts the moving encounter between Oskar Serti and Madeleine Ivernol on the stairs.
