What images keep you company in the space where you work?  In my studio there is a stuffed giraffe that I bought when my mother died, to replace her. Her name is Monique too, and she looks at me from on high with sadness and irony, just like my mother did.
I don’t think my mother would have chosen to return as a stuffed giraffe in the studio of her daughter, but she is dead.

Rue Fontaine (Philippe Garrel, 1984)

"It is no accident that hidden writings are associated with collective authors as is the case with apocrypha scripta. One of the initial symptoms of inauthenticity that Hidden Writing produces is positive disintegration or, more accurately, collectivization of one author (voice) or an authorial elite, and its transformation to an untraceable shady collective of writers, a crowd. This misauthorial problem is directly connected to the distortion or bastardization of books and their questionable backgrounds. Hence it is a constant nightmare for religious Books and their virginal romanticism. Inauthenticity operates as complicity with anonymous materials."
Reza Negarestani, Cyclonopedia: Complicity with Anonymous Materials [Melbourne: re.press, 2008], p. 62.
