Anne Sexton - The Poet Of Ignorance

Perhaps the earth is floating,
I do not know.
Perhaps the stars are little paper cutups
made by some giant scissors,
I do not know.
Perhaps the moon is a frozen tear,
I do not know.
Perhaps God is only a deep voice
heard by the deaf,
I do not know.


Perhaps I am no one.
True, I have a body
and I cannot escape from it.
I would like to fly out of my head,
but that is out of the question.
It is written on the tablet of destiny
that I am stuck here in this human form.
That being the case
I would like to call attention to my problem.


There is an animal inside me,
clutching fast to my heart,
a huge crab.
The doctors of Boston
have thrown up their hands.
They have tried scalpels,
needles, poison gasses and the like.
The crab remains.
It is a great weight.
I try to forget it, go about my business,
cook the broccoli, open the shut books,
brush my teeth and tie my shoes.
I have tried prayer
but as I pray the crab grips harder
and the pain enlarges.


I had a dream once,
perhaps it was a dream,
that the crab was my ignorance of God.
But who am I to believe in dreams?

Donald Moffett - The Extravagant Vein

Descobri Donald Moffett em Agosto, precisamente com esta exposição no Warhol Museum de Pittsburgh. Dos seus vinte anos de carreira, gostei particularmente da capacidade de interrogação política e social da realidade contemporânea cruzada com um desrespeito pela tradição dos materiais da pintura.

Havia mais para dizer, mas não sou a pessoa certa. Contudo, nesta lógica, achei interessantes as projeções em vídeo sobre telas, mantendo a textura da tela, da pintura. Três exemplos abaixo: Untitled (The Public) de 2002,  Gold/Landscape #2 de 2003 e Aluminium/Watergate de 2004.
