Continuous Moment: Le Desir… Damiano Bertoli

Published by The Narrows, Melbourne, 2010, 4 page concertina fold (b/w ill.), 10.5 × 29.7 cm (folded) 42 × 29.7 cm (unfolded), English

Price: €2

Continuous Moment: Le Desir… is part of Bertoli’s ongoing research and investigation into Picasso’s play Le Désir Attrapé par la Queue (Desire Captured by the Tail). Referring to both a 1944 reading of the play and a staging of the play in 1967 by Jean Jacques Lebel, Bertoli’s work addresses ideas of repetition, reprise and continuity. Like Picasso’s text and Lebel’s production, Bertoli draws on a vast network of references and influences. In this light,Continuous Moment: Le Desir… can be understood as an assemblage of existing voices through which Bertoli is part of the aggregating authorship around ‘Le Désir’.

Through a series of parallel actions the whole exhibition was connecting the interior and exterior with the presence of an old Japanese man “living” in the exhibition and with two young women dressed in traditional Japanese costumes who were walking in the des Buttes-Chaumont Park in Paris.
