THE MASK OF MEDUSA

“The Medusa Complex is the operational psyche of syncretism, that which brings together not only disparate ways of perceiving and believing, but of being – that which transforms through precisely its refusal of traditional boundaries of flesh or stone, of mythology or history, of intellect or art…” Ted Hiebert, Canadian visual artist, “The Medusa Complex”.

THE DARK GLASS

“EU. Convergencia esmagadora. Os espelhos reluzem imsurportaveis belados. Olho mais do que olho. Olho no olho. Fundamento. Eu escrevo EU.”

“We are one. Me and me. ME. Dead centre. The mirrors give off an intolerable glare. Frozen. I see more than I see. Eye to eye. Bedrock. I write what I write. I.”

Helena Parente Cunha, “Mulher No Espelho”, “Woman Between Mirrors”.

ENTERING THE LABYRINTH

ENTERING THE LABYRINTH

“There’s no need to build a labyrinth when the entire universe is one.

A labyrinth of symbols… An invisible labyrinth of time.

I leave to the various futures (not to all) my Garden of Forking Paths.

I know what the Greeks did not know, incertitude.”

Jorge Luis Borges, The Garden of Forking Paths, “Labyrinths”.
