‘erotic anamnesis’

nine paintings
2017

 

 

…”These paintings are, then, both a gloss on Agamben’s text—their titles drawn from essay headings or evocative phrases therein—and a painterly meditation on the themes that it unlocks: the problem of individuality, the function of desire, and the way these interact with states, communities and other exercisers of power. “

…”Agamben compares the nature of his “singularity” to the fate of unbaptized children who die innocent and are sent to limbo: “Like letters with no addressee, these uprisen beings remain without a destination. Neither blessed like the elected, nor hopeless like the damned, they are infused with a joy with no outlet.” This is, perhaps, the state that Pieters seeks for her works: sufficient, undifferentiated, belonging only to themselves.”…
