MANIFESTO BY AKAJI MARO

 

フランソワ・シェニョ―の存在に、私麿赤兒が見たものは、

瞬時の中の永遠、悪徳・背徳の系譜、逆流する血のエロティスズム
だ。
それらを静かに秘めたる彼の肉体が最後に戴冠するものは、いかな
るものか!
麿赤兒はその人智では計り知れない価値の戴冠に、司祭としての位
置に立つと言うことだ。
その総体はきたるべき人類の未来を見据え、その未来をいかに生き
るかと言う、身を賭したレッスンのダンスでもある。

麿赤兒

What I, Akaji Maro, saw in François Chaignaud was eternity in an instant, the genealogy of vice and immorality, the eroticism of blood flowing backward.
His flesh calmly conceals all that. What will finally come and crown it?
For the crowning of these values unintelligible to man, Akaji Maro will serve as priest. In the end, this will also be a dance of coming-of-age with our bodies at stake, staring into the future of humanity and questioning the ways to live in it.
