Press Release:

“The whole thing was composed very quickly, as though all I had to do was transcribe a dictation, or better yet, as though I were describing it as a play 1 was watching, leaving out none of the words which the actors’ various poses suggested to me, so that I actually felt as though I were right there listening to them speak.”

– Pierre Klossowski

The exhibition principally concentrates on the figure of the adolescent as he emerged in Klosswoski’s works of the late 80’s. This figure had assumed a number of earlier forms, initially as Antoine in Roberte ce Soir, Petit F and Petit X of the same scenario, and later as Ogier in the Baphomet, and finally again as the Immortal of his last text, from which the title of this show is taken.
