Last Time I’ve Heard Your Name, I Thought Of Someone Else


Allow me to identify the characters that make up this sculptural composition: Mnemosyne, a titanic proto-goddess, the mother of the muses; her first initiate, the initiate of the occult, propping up with his bearded head the historic account of the reign of Louis XIV; the second initiate, the initiate of amnesia, that disease of the human race, who is drinking the water of Lethe out of a coke can, grasping at the hem of Mnemosyne’s toga, prostrated and disoriented like a tourist at Chateau Versailles; and then the stomped upon head of a savage, his weapon, like the beard of the Dante’s demon, sticking out of his own mouth.
