Sgt. Pepper, ou comment peupler l’imaginaire

Sgt. Pepper, ou comment peupler l’imaginaire | English Usage for French Insights | Scoop.it
La foule de célébrités réunie autour des quatre musiciens semble cligner de l’œil vers la situation paradoxale du groupe, qui refuse de se produire en public, et revendique son effacement sous un nom d’emprunt. Pour autant, on ne peut pas y lire un message univoque. Au contraire, comme le projet lui-même, l’image multiplie les signaux et brouille les pistes. S’agit-il d’un concert ou d’un enterrement? D’un adieu ou d’un renouveau? Pourquoi les Beatles sont-ils présents deux fois, comme statues de cire et comme musiciens déguisés?

Entire body of UK public sculpture to go online by 2020

Entire body of UK public sculpture to go online by 2020 | English Usage for French Insights | Scoop.it
Britain will be the first country to create an online catalogue of its entire collection of publicly owned sculpture. Art UK, a charity which recently completed a similar venture for 210,000 oil paintings, is undertaking the operation.
 
Art UK believes there are around 150,000 sculptures in the UK’s public collections, which it defines as museums, galleries, universities, hospitals and other public buildings. A further 16,500 outdoor public monuments and sculptures will also be included. Antiquities made before AD1000, of which there are probably some tens of thousands in museums, will be excluded.
 
The cost of digitising nearly 170,000 sculptures will work out at just over £13 an object.

England’s Forgotten Muslim History | English Usage for French Insights | Scoop.it
The sugar, silks, carpets and spices transformed what the English ate, how they decorated their homes and how they dressed. Words such as “candy” and “turquoise” (from “Turkish stone”) became commonplace. Even Shakespeare got in on the act, writing “Othello” shortly after the first Moroccan ambassador’s six-month visit.
