Mikhail Iliatov: A ROAD TO SHURI-JO


July 20 – August 5, 2009

I start with memories of my dreams searching for places that I never visited and lives that I never lived.

On the way there other questions come up and I often get side-tracked.

Realizing the dreams I forget the memories.

Recalling the memories I stop dreaming.

And so it all ends up being a struggle to hold on to ephemeral instances.

Also see Marcel Proust on madeleine cakes and ‘Proust’ by Samuel Beckett – they said it better.
