Every Time I am (Reading) Someone
2001, 8:30 min


Every Time (translated transcript)

Every time I read about someone
An artist
When I red about someone
Someone who attracts me
A biography
It is always the same thing
When I close the book
Something else happens
I don’t know what it is
that happens
Something changes in the thoughts
I put myself in the position
of the protagonist from the book
from the biography
I put myself in his place
as if I was him
as if I was himAnd the people who are telling the story
of that protagonist
from the biography
are all of a sudden
speaking about my life
shedding light
Always those suppresses of light
strange ones
surprise me
I know that I’m not that hero
A.A. which I have now read about
in the book
but something about the tone of speech
of the writing
joined me later on
accompanied me
and it’s the strangest thing when it doesn’t go away
when it stays with me
accompanies me.
