Mommy-Mômo, &/ou once more: Dolan, le temps hors de ses gonds***

... la béance abyssale du visage en l'ouverture de tous ses trous,
de sa bouche de vérité, de ses yeux creusés...
Jacques Derrida, Artaud le Moma






































































***perhaps what they all celebrate here is le passé pur (& simple), but the imbalance of this movie is much more truthful to...

Je-Fèces-Enfants


When one is a child, one has such enormous categories that they would now almost make one dizzy.
Constantine Constantius (translation by M. G. Piety)

Face aux états de détresse que nous évoque l'enfant qui se fait entendre mais est incapable de se faire comprendre, nous employons, nous adultes, le mot de 'peur'.
Julia Kristeva, Pouvoirs de l'horreur

Pourtant la pulpe à l'intérieur est veloutée et souple, neutre et apaisante.
Julia Kristeva, Le vieil homme et les loups

...un étalage de figurines translucides qui paraissaient soufflées dans le sucre... des têtes en cire de garçonnets...
Hervé Guibert

... ma mère adore l'odar de ma merde...
Marcel Duchamp, Notes

Crianças não se dizem adeus.
Iberê Camargo, Gaveta dos Guardados

coucou!
Pierre Angelici

The worst event of the early months was the incident described in A Portrait and confirmed by Joyce to Herbert Gorman, when another boy broke Stephen's glasses and Father Dolan pandied the victim on the mistaken premise that he had broken the glasses himself to avoid study... Joyce was to speak of Father Dolan later to Gorman as 'low bread.' He was not the white-haired old man described in A Portrait, but a dark-haired tyrant of about forty... Joyce would no more have judged Byron by his love affairs than he would Parnell. He did not submit, but went home crying to his mother, who comforted himand mended his clothes...

"o artista é uma persona PÚBLICA..."
Gerald Thomas, Entre Duas Fileiras

"Si nous ne savions dramatiser,
nous ne pourrions sortir de nous-mêmes."

"... before World War I, 'A ballet dancer was available for any man at any hour in Vienna for two hundred crowns'. To marry someone with such associations could destroy even a well-established career." 

"Morgenstern was astonished to learn that Gödel took an interest in ghosts, and he was very dismayed by Gödel’s choice of wife, whom he described as 'a Viennese washerwoman type: garrulous uncultured, and strong-willed'."

"Gödel’s fondness for telephone conversations, his difficulty in ending them, and his insensitivity to other’s sleeping habits have been attested by a number of informants."

[From John W. Dawson Jr, Logical Dilemmas: The Life and Work of Kurt Gödel (Wellesley: A. K. Peters), 1997]

“... dès qu’il cessa de faire la guere, sa vie assuma le lamentable cours que lui donnèrent ses crimes, et la suite de ses vains efforts...”

“... ce qui intéresse dans le personage de Gilles de Rais est généralement ce qui nous lie à la monstruosité que, sous le nom de cauchemar, l’être humain porte en lui dès la tendre enfance...”

[From Georges Bataille, Le Procès de Gilles de Rais (Montreuil: Jean-Jacques Prevert), 1965]
