Accepting the representation of self. Until the mold. Until the idea of the identical which grazes identity. Like the minute distance that separates the sculpture of a face from the death mask. Diversity of expressions in order to signify life that continues. White against a white background. But the white does not exist. Plaster against a light back – ground. Painful and calm variations of the portrait. Seen from the front, from above. Both in relief and 􏰄attended on a background. Pinned, by an unknown entomologist, like the variations of a species. Again a statement of different phases. Re-creation. Memory as well. However, nothing scientific, apart from the appearance. But, there again, necessity. To assume.􏰀 Therapy? Perhaps. Some expressions take on a new meaning: looking at yourself from front on.
