Imaginary Museum

Written by

The Imaginary Museum is the garden of memory.  The garden of intimacy and of writing.  Where the lives of authors are unravelled.

The ImaginaryMuseum is the place where one goes when they have chosen to live under the artifice of literature and no longer seek the truth, not even in likelihood, just the fulfillment of a pretext which will enable them to continue to create.


In the ImaginaryMuseum there is but one exhibit: an author.  A foggy character who yet continues to live thousands of interpretations of the same life.  Embirikos, Borges, Kharms, Roidis, Hesse, Beratis, Schultz, Perec, Pessoa, Tsvetayeva.

The ImaginaryMuseum is an exemplary collection, variations of the same subject. A sideways look at the attitude of the person striving to preserve the word.  Despite knowing that a merciless superstition remains firm in the belief that in the end all will be lost.
