Tis documentary film is showing Jean-Pierre Sergent installing a new large mural of 18 paintings on Plexiglas sized 3.15 x 6.30 m, in his Besançon studio’s on March 13th, 2015. Those 18 paintings have been chosen from his new body of works series: The Entropic Suites (114 paintings today), completed between 2011 & 2014. The images and the themes have been largely inspired to the artist by his reading of the Upanishads, the Hindu book, one of the oldest in the history of writing, and specially from this beautiful quotations:

„Desire, the womb, the Digit of Desire,
The Wielder of the Thunderbolt, the Cave,
Ha sa, the Wind, the Cloud, the King of Heaven,
Yet again the Cave, Sa ka la and maya
Such is the primeval Wisdom, embracing all,
Mother of the vast universe.”
in Tripura Upanishad #8

„I have seen thousands of wombs,
Eaten several kinds of food and sucked many breasts.
Born and dead again and again,
I am immersed in grief but see no remedy.
Thinking of my good and bad deeds,
I am suffering alone,
Although the bodies that enjoyed the fruits are gone.”
In Garbha Upanishad #4
