Sample text

With the City? Who is he, this illegal, who makes himself one with the re-apparitions, who makes walls start to breathe again, makes traces and tracks sigh, who honours the WomanCity’s love? ’ Here, in the narrow street, at this moment we see that he is in City, along with the greatest of the walker-Seers. City is an Illumination. Ernest is another ephemeral, and citizen-other of a nyctapole that he illuminates and which illuminates him. – Read me, says Naples, find the signs of my passage, says the Mother, make my hand once more, in the blotches on the walls recognise my body’s true shape.

What does he do, in the City? With the City? Who is he, this illegal, who makes himself one with the re-apparitions, who makes walls start to breathe again, makes traces and tracks sigh, who honours the WomanCity’s love? ’ Here, in the narrow street, at this moment we see that he is in City, along with the greatest of the walker-Seers.

Premiere is a hilarious case of homonymy transposed into image. It is a phantasmatic machine. A woman is also another woman. A woman is more than one woman and a bit of a bloke too. Premiere is a title, it is the proper noun of an installation which frolics on the walls of a Viennese theatre. It is the name of the first performance of a show. It is a French word in English. It designates the person who comes at the top of a listing. Who can assert to be the First here? Premiere is always in the process of getting back on top of things.
