“Hirohisa Koike”

“Desire remains in relation to the distantness of the star, entreating the sky, appealing to the universe” - Maurice Blanchot<br /> The title of the series <em>Desiderium</em> is desire in Latin, which refers to the star (Latin: <em>siderium</em>; Greek: <em>aster</em>). Blanchot writes about this desire as as <em>undesirable impossible</em>, which <em>remains</em> as such.<br /> According to him, the disaster is to be without a guiding star, without any perspective or orientation. Like a sky in Estonia at the midsummer night, you know there are many stars over there but you can't see any as it's too bright.<br /> Portrait by Alexandra Pinkhassov.
