Bastien a los angeles trentaine. Il a passé son enfance en Corrèze dans un hameau isolé, au sein d’une famille aimante. À huit ans il tombe amoureux de Nicolas, un de ses camarades de classe, qui disparaît peu après dans un coincidence de voiture. N’ayant pu consacrer sa vie à ce garçon, Bastien l. a. consacrera aux hommes que le hasard mettra sur sa path. Bastien est régisseur de théâtre, il aime aussi l’escalade, quand il n’est pas sur les plateaux il affronte les à-pics des grands causses de Lozère. En outre, depuis l’enfance, il s’habille parfois en fille pour voir remark le monde alors apparaît et répond. Enfin il arrive qu’il ne soit ni au théâtre ni au grand air, ni habillé en garçon ou en fille, mais nu dans quelques movies pornographiques qui lui permettent d’allier l’utile à l’agréable.C’est dans un de ces movies que je l’ai vu pour los angeles première fois. Je ne me suis jamais remis de los angeles liberté insolente de sa présence. Devant l’écran où je me tiens caché, à l’ombre de l. a. lumière que Bastien projette, sans fin j’interroge le mystère de son apparition, le sens qu’elle confère à ma vie. Je tente ici de deviner tout ce que les motion pictures où je le vois s’ébattre dérobent à ma vue (son enfance, son travail, sa famille, ses amours, ses habits), me laissant dans l’exercice conjugué du regard et du désir, dans los angeles contemplation d’un portrait lumineux et brutal à peaufiner pour les jours, désormais proches, où l’ombre gagnera.

L. a. déchirure Française
Mensuel n°560 daté octobre 2015
DOSSIER. Lumières contre anti-lumières, l. a. déchirure française. Alors que l. a. contrast entre l. a. gauche et los angeles droite devient diffuse, l. a. France s’est aujourd’hui choisi un nouveau clivage : l. a. «pensée unique» contre les «réacs», les «élites» et le «populisme». À y regarder de plus près, c’est une nouvelle fois l’héritage des Lumières, ses interprétations concurrentes ou son rejet, qui est en jeu. En partant des joutes politiques et intellectuelles contemporaines (notamment cristallisées par le nouvel essai d’Alain Finkielkraut), ce file met en point of view une guerre des Lumières qui a cours depuis le XVIIIe siècle et ne s’est jamais éteinte: entre Lumières et anti-Lumières, mais aussi entre Lumières divergentes, le conflit est originel en France, non sans paradoxes. Lumières «modérées» ou «radicales», révolutionnaires et contre-révolutionnaires, rationalistes et mystiques… Leur position sur l’échiquier intellectuel est parfois surprenante. Un file coordonné par Pierre-Yves Beaurepaire et Marc Weitzmann
