Mark Aerial Waller: Party of the Flowers and the Nightingales
Samstag, 24.9.2016, 17 Uhr, Lothringer 13 Florida, München
Dear Friends, Flowers and Nightingales,
You are invited to the pre-party, to prepare cocktails, enhance your dance, stage your future, on Saturday, followed by our own party together to clear our ears and hear. Party of the Flowers and the Nightingales will occupy the convergent space of film viewing where the gallery exhibition overlaps with cinema and social gathering.
“Like Ulysses, Nicolai tried to stop the ears of his companions so that they would not hear the songs of the sirens, not caring that they then also became deaf to the innocent tones of the nightingale. In order to clear the field of the present completely of all weeds, this practical man hardly scrupled at pulling up the flowers as well. But the party of the flowers and the nightingales, with all that belonged to it, beauty, grace, wit, and playfulness, rose up in arms against this, and poor Nicolai was defeated.”
