Alphabetarion # Freedom | Albert Camus, 1956

Ernie Kniepert, Entwirft Tanzkostüme, poster

"Freedom is not a reward or a decoration that you toast in champagne. On the contrary, 
it's hard graft and a long-distance run, all alone, very exhausting. Alone in a dreary room,
 alone in the dock before the judges, and alone to make up your mind, before yourself and 
before the judgement of others. At the end of every freedom there is a sentence, which is 
why freedom is too heavy to bear."

Albert Camus, The Fall, 1956


Η τριβή | Αργύρης Χιόνης, 1986


 Ἡ τριβή

Ἡ τριβή τοῦ βότσαλου
στήν ὄχθη
Ἡ τριβή τοῦ ἥλιου
στήν κόψη τοῦ βουνοῦ
Ἡ τριβή τῆς καρδιᾶς
στήν ἄγρια ἐπιφάνεια τοῦ καιροῦ
Ἡ τριβή τῆς στιγμῆς
πάνω στήν αἰωνιότητα
Ἡ τριβή τοῦ ἔρωτα
πάνω σέ νοικοκυρεμένα κρεβάτια
Ἡ τριβή τῆς συνύπαρξης

Ἡ συντριβή

Αργύρης Χιόνης, ΙΘ' Η τριβή
συλ. Σαν τον τυφλό μπροστά στον καθρέφτη, 1986

Book//mark - Fortunata and Jacinta | Benito Pérez Galdós, 1887

Benito Pérez Galdós, 1843 – 1920                             Benito Perez Galdos. Fortunata and Jacinta: Two Stories of Married Women,1887 

"Ah finery! Who cannot perceive here one of the main sources of energy in the present age,
 a generic source of activity and life? Think for a moment what it represents, what it is worth; 
think of the wealth and ability devoted to producing it by the most industrious city in the world.
 Without you liking the idea, from among the folds of fashionable materials will appear our 
entire middle-class structure, an enormous pyramid with a topic hat at its apex, the whole 
political and administrative machine, the public debt, the railways, the national budget and 
income, the judiciary and socialist parliamentary activity."

"He was an author of bad novels, and not being able to write them for the public 
anymore he tried to fill real life with the products of his tubercular imagination."

"There is no human being, no matter how despicable he may seem,
 who cannot stand out in something.”

"Everything in this world depends on form, on style. Nothing is good or bad in itself."

"If I had to choose between a society without principles and a society 
without appearances, I don't know which I'd take."

"Moreno, in his mildly troubled state, had begun to confuse
 immediate impressions with memories."

"Life ceased in him as a consequence of a ruptured heart, which produced an instantaneous 
commotion that vanished as quickly as it had come. He was torn away from the great tree of
 humanity, a completely dry leaf whose imperceptible fibers had held him there. The tree felt 
nothing in its myriad branches. Here and there, at the same moment, leaves and more useless
 leaves were falling; but the next morning would reveal countless fresh new buds."

"Evil breeds, and the good are annihilated in sterility.”

"But they won't be able to confine my thoughts 
within these walls. I live among the stars.”

Benito Perez Galdos. Fortunata and Jacinta: Two Stories of Married Women, 1887

Exquisite Corpse | Collages by André Breton / Jacqueline Lamba / Yves Tanguy, 1938

The Cadavre Exquis (Exquisite Corpse) was a favourite surrealist game from the mid-1920s 
onwards. It usually involved three or four participants who added to a drawing, collage or 
sentence, without seeing what the others had already done. Made by André Breton, his 
second wife Jacqueline Lamba, and Yves Tanguy, while on a weekend holiday together 
in February 1938.

The name is derived from a phrase that resulted when Surrealists first played the game, 
"Le cadavre exquis boira le vin nouveau." ("The exquisite corpse shall drink the new wine.") 
André Breton writes that the game developed at the residence of friends in an old house at 
54 rue du Chateau (no longer existing). In the beginning were Yves Tanguy, Marcel Duchamp, 
Jacques Prévert, Benjamin Péret, Pierre Reverdy, and André Breton. Other participants 
probably included Max Morise, Joan Miró, Man Ray, Simone Collinet, Tristan Tzara,
 Georges Hugnet, René Char, and Paul and Nusch Éluard.
Henry Miller often partook of the game to pass time in French cafés during the 1930s.

Alphabetarion # Message | Patricia Highsmith, 1960

Frederick Varley (1881-1969), The Lonesome Tree

"He ran into a tree, hurting his shoulder and the right side of his head. It was vaguely familiar 
to him, the action of running into a tree. Where? When? He went slowly back to the tree and
 put his hand on its rough, immovable trunk, confident that the tree would tell him an important 
piece of wisdom, or a secret. He felt it, but he could not find words for it: it had something to do 
with identity. The tree knew who he was really, and he had been destined to bump into it. The tree
 had a further message. It told him to be calm and quiet and to stay with Annabelle."

Patricia Highsmith, This Sweet Sickness, 1960
