«No one can be sure that his body is not a garden that the earth itself created to give its own names to your»
The aphorism "art requires sacrifice" seems at times so obvious that it has never been challenged. Sacrifice plays an almost fundamental role in art, thus confirming that in culture as a whole, sacrifice is the engine of life. Unlike other aspects of life, in art the victim is most often the creator himself. Artists have often been victims of power, of the crowd, but most often victims of their own art.
The garden is a man-made part of nature, the condition of which is directly depends on how we, the creators, dispose of it. Man, his inner world, is presented as several self-sufficient, but complementary worlds - "gardens" to which we address when we know ourselves: Memory, Body, Imagination, Thought.
