one year ago: from the land of paradoxes

“The presumptions that the future follows the past, that mourning might follow melancholia, that mourning might be completed are all poignantly called into question in these pages as we realize a series of paradoxes: the past is irrecoverable and the past is not past: the past is the resource for the future and the future is the redemption of the past; loss must be marked and it cannot be represented: loss fractures representation itself and loss precipitates its own modes of expression.”
