And yet Rodin does belong to us, not by virtue of his light-trap modeling, but because in him, for the first time, we see firm flesh resolve itself into a symbol of perpetual flux. Rodin’s anatomy is not the fixed law of each human body but the fugitive configuration of a moment. […] And the strength of the Rodinesque forms does not lie in the suggestion of bone, muscle and sinew. It resides in the more irresistible energy of liquefaction, in the molten pour of matter as every shape relinquishes its claim to permanence. Rodin’s form thus becomes symbolic of an energy more intensely material, more indestructible and more universal than human muscle power. And it is here, I believe, that Rodin links up with contemporary vision. — Art Digest, August 1953, Leo Steinberg, in Other Criteria: Confrontations with Twentieth-Century Art.
ты больше не пишешь стихи,
ты не фотографируешь меня.
это же так романтично, - нет.
у тебя за ухом сигарета, ты достаешь ее -
затягиваешься не спеша,
будто дым - твой воздух.
ты думаешь, что я милая.
иногда ты позволяешь себе
‘What are you doing up so late? … I’m counting the stars … Do you really know all their names? … Yes I do … How many did you count? … A hundred … There are more than a hundred … I know … Why did you stop? … A hundred is enough, once you’ve counted a hundred all the other hundreds are the same’
