Le plaisir du texte - Roland Barthes (1973)

July 12th, 2012 - Giacometti

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art - Copenhagen - 2012, July. This place. The Architecture. The emplacement. The collection. The exhibition. Suddenly, I meet again Giacometti.

As far as I can remember, I don’t know when I saw a Giacometti for the first time. But I remember staying long minutes in front of Hands holding a void at the Moma when I first discovered this piece of art.  What a surprise, a few days after to be standing in front of the white one at the Yale University Art Gallery.

I am not a sculptures specialist at all. But staring at those primitive faces made me feel all the weight of the world in this very simple faces. How disturbing.

In Louisiana. Again. Here I go with an internal dialogue I already had with the Hands holding the void. Strong. Sad. Heavy. Intense.
