Olivier Urman, artiste Francais a depose avec ses habituels complices, devant l entree du cimetiere du Pere Lachaise une oeuvre composee d une croix en ciment de trois metres de hauteur fixee sur un socle portant l inscription La mort, c etait mieux avant. Paris, le 24 mai 2020.
Olivier Urman exprime ainsi son inquietude quant au fait de mourir en France en 2020, plus specialement durant la periode de confinement suite a la crise du Covid-19.
Il accompagne son installation du texte suivant.
Cette croix est erigee vers le ciel tel un arc ou plus exactement une verge en erection.
Empecher les gens d aller aux obseques, c est comme vouloir procreer en mettant une capote anglaise, refusant les maladies sexuellement transmissibles. C est Covid de sens.
La vie est un risque a prendre.
Mourir n est pas une honte ou une corvee d ebouage. Mourir est un accomplissement, un devoir et un exemple. C est faire don de sa personne, de son ame aux vivants et a la nature.
Cela merite certainement d etre accompagne avec les honneurs pars les siens lors de ce changement d etat.
Il n y a pas de precautions raisonnables qui tiennent.
Mourir n a jamais tue personne.

Olivier Urman, a French artist, placed together with his usual accomplices a work of art in front of the entrance to the Pere Lachaise cemetery, consisting of a three-metre-high cement cross fixed on a base bearing the inscription La mort, c etait mieux avant (Death, was better before). Paris, 24 May 2020.
Olivier Urman thus expresses concern about dying in France in 2020, especially during the period of confinement following the Covid-19 crisis.
He accompanies his installation with the following text.
This cross is erected towards the sky like an bow, or more exactly an erect rod.
Preventing people from going to funerals is like wanting to procreate by putting on a condom, refusing sexually transmitted diseases. It s Covid of sense.
Life s a risk have to take.
Dying isn t a shame or scavenging chore . Dying is an achievement, a duty and an example. It is a gift of one s person, of one s soul to the living and to nature.
It certainly deserves to be accompanied with the honors with his own during this change of state.
There are no reasonable precautions that hold.
Dying has never killed anyone.
