Hans Bellmer (1902-1975).... Untitled


"I wonder if I will wear the tight seamless trousers made of your legs, ornamented all along the inside with faux-excrements? And do you think I will, without swooning prematurely, button over my chest the heavy and trembling waistcoast of your breasts? As soon as I am immobilized beneath the pleated skirt of all your fingers and weary to undo the garlands with which you have enwreathed the drowsiness of your never-born fruit, then you will breathe in me your perfume and your fever, so that, in full light, from the interior of your sex, mine will emerge." Hans Bellmer

from  - Petite anatomie de l'inconscient physique ou l'anatomie de l'image. Paris: Le Terrain Vague, 1957.

  1. You seem to be ripe to read Georges Bataille! (if you have not done it yet)

  2. Hi Bernard yes i enjoyed a lot of his writings,a quote i like from 'Eroticism'
    "Poetry leads to the sameplace as all forms of eroticism-to the blending and fusion of separate objects. It leads us to eternity, it leads us to death, and through death to continuity. POetry is eternity; the sun matched with the sea".
    and one i enjoy a lot too is 'The Solar Anus'

  3. Is it possible to go any further?

  4. Eternity is as far as I will go ;) I went to visit Bellmer and Zürns grave as they are buried together. Hans Bellmer had this epitaph written on Zürns grave "My love will follow you into Eternity" :)
