Since a long time the painter Marcel Alocco and the writer William Xerra dialog together about the connection between painting and writing. These two artists belong to the same genration and they share the same fights and the same memories. The both have always integrated writing inside canvas and canvas inside writing because the borders between the both disciplines never really exist. The painter Marcel Alocco has followed writing studies in a French University and was the editor of a review during the 1960's where poems has been published. He uses also ideograms when he works. The writer William Xerra makes an art work who oscillate between sculpting and painting. The purpose of Alocco and Xerra is to interrogate themselves about the art work meaning.
