Erwin Wurm
"Wurm é mais conhecido pelas suas "One Minute Sculptures", uma série de performances em que são utilizados objectos do dia-a-dia como canetas, camisolas, vassouras, baldes, para conceber com o corpo humano uma escultura. É isto que interessa ao artista: a expansão dos limites desta vertente artística a três dimensões"

God's Wheel

God says to me with a kind of smile,
"Hey how would you like to be God awhile
And steer the world?""Okay," says I, "I'll give it a try.
Where do I set?
How much do I get?
What time is lunch?
When can I quit?"
"Gimme back that wheel," says God.
"I don't think you're quite ready yet."

Shel Silverstein

Rene Magritte
"The mind loves the unknown. It loves images whose meaning is unknown, since the meaning of the mind itself is unknown."

When Man Enters Woman

When man,
enters woman,
like the surf biting the shore,
again and again,
and the woman opens her mouth with pleasure
and her teeth gleam
like the alphabet,
Logos appears milking a star,
and the maninside of woman
ties a knotso that they will
never again be separateand the woman
climbs into a flowerand swallows its stem
and Logos appears
and unleashes their rivers.
This man,this woman
with their double hunger,
have tried to reach through
the curtain of God
and briefly they have,
through Godin His perversity
unties the knot.

Andy Warhol

"I never think that people die. They just go to department stores."


a girlfriend came in
built me a bed
scrubbed and waxed the kitchen floor
scrubbed the walls
cleaned the toilet
the bathtub
scrubbed the bathroom floor
and cut my toenails and my hair.then
all on the same day
the plumber came and fixed the kitchen faucet
and the toilet
and the gas man fixed the heater
and the phone man fixed the phone.
now I sit in all this perfection.
it is quiet.
I have broken off with all 3 of my girlfriends.
I felt better when everything was in disorder.
it will take me some months to get back to normal:
I can't even find a roach to commune with.
I have lost my rythm.
I can't sleep.
I can't eat.
I have been robbed of
my filth.

A thousand doors ago when
I was a lonely kid
in a big house with four
garages and it was summer
as long as I could remember,
I lay on the lawn at night,
clover wrinkling over me,
the wise stars bedding over me,
my mother's window a funnel
of yellow heat running out,
my father's window, half shut,
an eye where sleepers pass,
and the boards of the house
were smooth and white as wax
and probably a million leaves
sailed on their strange stalks
as the crickets ticked together
and I, in my brand new body,
which was not a woman's yet,
told the stars my questions
and thought God could really see
the heat and the painted light,
elbows, knees, dreams, goodnight.

Anne Sexton


The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

"This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy"

"In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move. "

"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be."

I'm a riddle in nine syllables,
An elephant, a ponderous house,
A melon strolling on two tendrils.
O red fruit, ivory, fine timbers!
This loaf's big with its yeasty rising.
Money's new-minted in this fat purse.
I'm a means, a stage, a cow in calf.
I've eaten a bag of green apples,
Boarded the train there's no getting off.

Sylvia Plath


Be careful of words,
even the miraculous ones.
For the miraculous we do our best,
sometimes they swarm like insects
and leave not a sting but a kiss.
They can be as good as fingers.
They can be as trusty as the rock
you stick your bottom on.
But they can be both daisies and bruises.
Yet I am in love with words.
They are doves falling out of the ceiling.
They are six holy oranges sitting in my lap.
They are the trees, the legs of summer,
and the sun, its passionate face.
Yet often they fail me.
I have so much I want to say,
so many stories, images, proverbs, etc.
But the words aren't good enough,
the wrong ones kiss me.
Sometimes I fly like an eagle
but with the wings of a wren.
But I try to take care
and be gentle to them.
Words and eggs must
be handled with care.
Once broken they
are impossible things to repair.

Anne Sexton

Life On Mars

It's a God-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling "No"
And her daddy has told her to go
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
Now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen
But the film is a saddening bore
For she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It's on America's tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
And now the workers have struck for fame
'Cos Lennon's on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my Mother, my dog, and clowns
But the film is a saddening bore
'Cos I wrote it ten times or more
It's about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

para qualificar as pessoas
e as coisas de que em princípio eu não gosto.

De Tanto Bater o Meu Coração
"Tom (Romain Duris, o protagonista de "A Residência Espanhola") tem 28 anos e está destinado a seguir os passos do pai no mundo podre dos negócios imobiliários. Mas um encontro inesperado leva-o a acreditar que ele pode tornar-se, à semelhança da mãe, pianista. Deixar esse mundo corrupto e voltar a entregar-se à música. Para tal, prepara-se para uma audição com uma virtuosa pianista chinesa. Ela não fala uma palavra de francês, por isso a música é a única forma de comunicação. Mas as pressões do seu mundo de trabalho são cada vez maiores e cada vez mais difíceis de suportar"
De: Jacques Audiard
Com: Romain Duris, Niels Arestrup, Jonathan Zaccaï

Paredes de Coura

Arcade fire em Paredes de Coura, eu gostava de ter estado lá
"Em Paredes de Coura, foram épicos ao ponto de parecerem capazes de moverem montanhas e comunitários, como se a música deles viesse de um sítio que é simultaneamente muito pequeno(e por isso tão familiar) e descomunal. (...)
o palco parecia um sítio incrível, daqules mundos imaginários onde um violino desgovernado convive com uma baquete a estatelar-se contra capacete, onde um órgão morde o pescoço de Régine, onde há uma guitarra prestes a atirar-se de cabeça e isso faz todo o sentido"

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on that sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light

Dylan Thomas

Beleza da sombra

Alguns poderão dizer que a beleza enganadora criada pela penumbra não é a beleza autêntica.(...) nós os orientais criamos beleza ao fazermos nascer sombras em locais por si mesmos insignificantes.
(...) creio que o belo não é uma substância em si, mas apenas um desenho de sombras, um jogo de claro-escuro produzido pela justaposição de diversas substâncias. Tal como uma pedra fosforescente que emite brilho quando colocada na escuridão e ao se exposta á luz do dia perde todo o seu fascínio de joia preciosa, também o belo perde a sua existência se lhe suprimirmos os efeitos da sombra.

in Elogio da sombra , Junichiro Tanizaki


De facto fala-se de passado distante, mas, no homem, memória e reminiscênscia não podem certamente ser qualificadas como próximas ou distantes em função, unicamente, da sua data antiga ou recente. Pode acontecer que, melhor do que um facto da véspera, um acontecimento da infância, ja´com sessenta anos, seja conservado na nossa memória e reapareça da forma mais viva . Não acontece isso, exactamente, quando envelhecemos? De resto, não há casos em que são acontecimentos da infância que determinam a personalidade e determinam a vida inteira?
