THE BEAUTIFUL MOOD (2021)

Regarde-moi ©Benoit Gob

« The side of the moon is frustrating : obscenus we shall say. » Jean-Toussaint Desanti

What is rejected by sight and yet shows itself ; the things that should remain a secret and yet express themselves.

But, is the night actually operating on us, or do we rather perceive in it that blinding part of ourselves ?

Is the night absorbing us, or do we rather see in it the possibility of spreading ourselves ?

Is it obscene ? Would it refer to the unity of dissimulation and unveiling ? Or are we rather this black spot that disturbs the eye.

We are night.

 

We are this vibration, this blurred area.

We are this compelling desire that it will never stop.

We are this body ready to act, this quantity of force with a load that can be felt. This nocturnal space of "no image".

We are what night represents in a world numbed by the light.

We are this massive body, this labile body, this wild body.

We are this tense space, which we pierce to see inside.

We are this shadow that is thrown at our feet.

We are the stretching material, always looking for inclusion.

We are what extends and opens.

Neither totally dead, nor quite alive, we are the demolition and the recomposition.

We are an invitation, a summoning to laisser-faire attitude.

We are what finally collapses.

We are what mesmerizes, offends and forces the eye to look away.

An indiscreet abundance, neither banal nor reassuring.

We are the refuge, the sleep, the lullaby.

We are resonance, and its multiple modes of existence.

We are silence and breathing.

We are the echo, the crackle, the tremor.

We are what gets deformed, distended, disjointed.

We are everything that comes back again.

We are the end, and what it puts an end to is incompleteness itself.

We are this movement.
