Example text

New York: Routledge. CHAPTER TWO Before the Image, Before Time: The Sovereignty of Anachronism Georges Didi-Huberman Translated by Peter Mason Whenever we are before the image, we are before time. Like the poor illiterate in Kafka’s story, we are before the image as before the law: as before an open doorway. It hides nothing from us, all we need to do is enter, its light almost blinds us, holds us in submission. Its very opening—and I am not talking about the doorkeeper—holds us back: to look at it is to desire, to wait, to be before time.

Fabulations or fabulous fictions of presence that flaunt their fictionality. Between figuration and conceptualism—yet another route for her metaphoring activity—Bourgeois winks at us when, from a specific viewpoint, the surface full of secrets is no more than a dress, a habit unlike Teresa’s habit-turned-flames. Fabric that lovingly envelops, warms, the house with its royal folds. Care, humor, comradeship, and the maternal excess that suffocates surround the architecture. The level at which this work absorbs and releases Bernini’s search is this: the level of the most paradoxical integration, the fullest one—of the arts into the one art-assuch, pure, ideal, nonexistent—that Benjamin induces the translator to pursue.
