“Knowing from experience…”
Montage #2

Elsa-Louise Manceaux, “Untitled”, gouache and color pencil on newsprint paper, 2017

“Knowing from experience that the height or length you have in common is the sum of equal segments. For when bolt upright or lying at full stretch you cleave face to face then your knees meet and your pubes and the hairs of your heads mingle. Does it follow from this that the loss of height for the body that sits is the same as for it that kneels?”
Samuel Beckett, “Company” in Worstward Ho London: Calder, 1983, pp.24,25
