Sample text

The Baroque aesthetic was not beautiful, it was sublime. The sublime is always a passage to the boundary, whether it be high or low. With the Baroque she touches on the sublime, because she shows the thresholds, the excesses. But she sides much more with an aesthetic of difference, of the transition towards the other, an aesthetic of the artifice of the living: the historical question of the implant, the prosthesis, the grafting of the artificial on the living to create beauty. In the end, it is a mutant aesthetic which opens up to all the Proteus of the virtual, but which always returns to a plural self, transformed into that which is transformable, made up of all its plastic heteronymies.

It would be not to have a face or an image, no representation, and it is not the face or faciality or defaciality that saves me. To me what counts is to circulate around those possible images, to extract and unravel them, step by step, always astonished by the visions of what one could be and its way of being. And whatever the image, it is always imbued with a worrying strangeness. Christianity accepts the myriad versions of Christ’s representation, of virgins and saints: iconography that allows us to get close to something, to make something rather than nothing available to sight.
