Excerpt of the conversation between Robert Filliou (RF) and Irmeline Lebeer (IL), Flayosc, France, August 1976.

RF: Yes, because then you come there immediately. For Galerie Légitime everything is basically documented in the hat of the Frozen Exhibition, because I’ve summarised it all there. You have the hat, no? What do you have as text here?

IL: I wrote an article about it…

RF: I remember the article. Very good. We should put it all in. Under Galerie Légitime, as a kind of quote. Maybe we should put in a little hat. I like your references a lot and it’s very well done. We talk about the friends who collaborated. An evening with Eric Andersen, with Niki de Saint-Phalle… No? I think everything is in. We just need a photo of the hat, or this photo where I’m wearing it. Just write on your sheet: ‘more photos’. I find the information excellent. I’ll re-read it later. I don’t read everything now, because we want to move on fast. Since it’s your text, you can modify or cut it. Otherwise it’s very good. There’s nothing else to say about Galerie Légitime. I remember you’re making a reference to [Daniel Spoerri’s book] Topographie anecdotée du hasard, where you find the complete story of how Galerie Légitime was conceived. You should just put a reference to the English edition as well. It was published by Something Else Press. It’s an excellent documentation.
