Pig Conversations

“First of all it tells me I have to agree with people on something, and that’s complicated.”

“I thought there would be some French currency, but I didn’t see any, which I thought it’s kinda weird.”

“It’s not Euro’s, so it’s a problem if you want to spend it right away”

Pigzine Reporters reporting for Radio Grenouille, Travellings Festival, Marseille, France. 29/09/2018

Two people were asked what they would do with the money inside. The woman wanted to change the lyrics of the French national anthem because she found them too aggressive. The man would use it to help welcome the refugees currently at sea on the Aquarius boat, which the French government refused to welcome.

Two men, a young and an older one, approached the pig and tried to understand how to open it. A Pigzine reporter asked if they had the intention to open the pig. They said they didn’t understand how it worked and what the concept was. The reporter said they had to find an agreement with someone.

A woman came asking for more information. The Pigzine reporter asked what she would like to spend the money on. “I would give to the UNICEF” She went on to talk in length about children in Africa who don’t have enough to eat.

The reporter asked the two men what they would spend it on. “The environment” said the older man. “To deal with all the waste we produce”

“I would spend it on a human cause, not something material” said the younger one.

They couldn’t find an agreement with the woman and decided to leave.

“Celui-là (thepig) il me fait bien rire parce que jusqu’à ce qu’on y arrive, à se mettre d’accord…Donner c’est facile, mais c’est après que c’est compliqué!” 

“This one (thepig) makes me laugh because until we get there, to an agreement … Giving is easy, but afterwards it’s complicated!”

“Ce qui serait cool, ce serait de se rencontrer autour du Pig. Autour d’une grosse soirée ce serait cool, samedi soir par exemple quand les bars sont pleins, chacun propose un projet personnel qui peut devenir commun. Là par exemple on était avec deux femmes, et on a réfléchi à comment on pouvait collaborer sur l’utilisation de l’argent. Il faut qu’il y ait un objectif communautaire, une sorte de débat qui s’organise autour du cochon, avec tous ceux qui ont mis des pièces. Chacun propose et on vote, on fait un plan. Mais est-ce qu’on fait un vote? C’est chiant les votes. Un applaudimètre? Il faut un juge, et ça c’est chiant. Moi si c’est pour un téléphone par exemple ça me fait chier, sauf si le gars a besoin d’un téléphone pour avoir un job…” 

“What would be cool would be to meet around the Pig. A big party would be cool, Saturday night for example when the bars are full, everyone suggests a personal project that can become common. At the pig, for example, we were with two women, and we thought about how we could collaborate on the use of money. There must be a community goal, a kind of debate about the pig, with all those who put coins. Everyone suggests something and we vote, we make a plan. But should we make a vote? Voting is boring. An applaudimeter? You need a judge, but that’s boring too. In my mind if it’s for a phone for example it pisses me off, unless the guy needs a phone to get a job …”
