40 LOVES STORIES INCLUDES , with all the comprehensiveness of mural painting, as a view of the great mexicans:
- love as an ability for searching and accepting all that is different, urging us to give in to the pre-historical call of finding the exact opposite of one’s self
- love, touching us with its complete oblivion to all that is obvious
- love, is never what we expect it to be ,it is always out of control.
THE IMAGES OF EROS AND BACCHUS, Eros folds up his wings, puts on the clothes catholic priest St. Valentine , while Bacchus, massive and unbridled is turning into St. Trifon Zarezan – the Holy Virgin`s brother, trying not to spill his glass of merlot from Kalugerovo ),and almost
cuts his nose with the razor, he was using for trimming the vineyards…
CARNIVAL HEROES, who because of their uncomfortable costumes and the time difference, after 140 hours of feasting and partying die of exhaustion on the way between Venice and Rio.
MANY IMAGES – hieroglyphs of interweaved bodies, paintings on theirs own account, and part of one endless process of recalling, as a dream with a complicated story: one stuck door, another one extracted from its hinges, cherry flowers covering the garden like a snow, a woman hit by an electric shock, an Viagra pill-out of control, a Paris story, a Versaille fountain in a 43 degrees heat, a homeless man, raising his head from the garbage container, saying :
I‘m gonna turn your inside out baby!
And all this with Edith Piaffe`s Je vois la vie en rose in the background.
This feeling of endless and repetition, and not the memoirs of a new Casanova, is the stimulus behind 40 LOVE STORIES as well my firm belief that I have received my body and my self from a distant grand – grand mother (with a notary act, stamped with blood)
I believe our bodies are paper boats leading us from one coast to the other.
With love and respect for the paper boats.
