Βreaths of linear, rotational, concave and asymmetric figments enter through a rift into the unforeseen. They wish to germinate locus of substantial determination, the stability of which is anchored in the temporality of the event (événement). Formative outgrowths within a slit, not confined in given considerations, release inward movements, emerging forces that on the one hand appertain to the indécidable, on the other hand expose us vulnerable to the unpredictable advent of the other as imminent. Eventual "exist - beings” are born within the im-possible, which is set as a condition of the possible. It is the moment, in which the sudden, produces this feeble power without authority (sans pouvoir). Formations of ascending directions, ejection of distillates, ingoing linear motions, cessation signals, tissue growths, consecutive espacements, strong spectral paradoxical flashes, inmost imprints, linear substandard stabilizations, irregular vortices, multiple layerings and secret transitions recommend mental and sensory trajectories of the state of the “event” (événement). Images of resistance, uncertain of their stability or static adequacy, and of sudden hiatus, appear as lightning revelations of living things; they fade, as fireflies (lucciole). They are cosmic flashes in advent, which illuminate with a dim glow our frail coexistence; It is an injonction, to which every constitution or foundation is inconsistent. This powerlessness, traceable in the field of the ruptured invention of the artwork as an “event” (événement), becomes stronger than domination; a prospective promise for the upcoming, which transcends norms, history, dominant theories. Appearing the unapproachable, the im-possible evidences the experience itself as possible.
