What is the urgency of the body that manifests itself? Beyond the obstacle of the static, beyond the empty space, set in the anonymous bottom of the canvas. The body, this carnal presence that, forced, returns to be offered, in hold, to the look of who is waiting and watching.
At the bottom of the canvas matter that forms and expands itself. Emanation of an expression that becomes a body, that gives itself a body. Body that advances through the space, that sneaks into the look of who is watching. The presence of the body, this mass clot of forces that is essential. The first shape. The primal event that is encountered, from the origins: experience of all the experiences. The experience of the body as experience of the self, experience of the world and experience of the self in the world. However, this experience is basically an urgency. Urgency of the self, urgency of our own attitude in the world, as part of the world.
The presence of a body that becomes clear. A paleface of purity that is getting ready to the urgency of its – like – birth. But it is already stained with the blood of its own guilt. Responsibility of being a body, of being the concrete event of a system that, on the surface, seems to essentially show the laceration or the pain.
