The Problem of the Foreigner
[He or she] is an uncertainty in the landscape.
[He or she] has no mother tongue, is linguistically
by R. Armstrong
archival. [He or she] listens like an adjective, with
too much behind the face of [his or her] hearing.
Massing, the foreigner disappears, ties a knot
in the story, slips it.
too far in the wrong direction. [He or she] believes
far too much of what [he or she] is told.

en una ciudad extraña
con tendencia hostil
donde a nadie le importa
donde nadie sabe que existes
donde yo no se qué existe
donde no se sabe ser
ni una lágrima alivia la presión
como un dique a punto de rebasar
como la grieta que no puede existir
by Tania Arcimovič
This stone is a part of an art project by Kristina Estell, and I guess every studio in Haus II has one. Many times I read a letter from the artist where she describes her concept and asks a person who lives in the studio to send her the documentation how this stone was used. It was a pity for me because I really like this idea, but I looked at my stone on an upper bookcase and knew that I never use it. When I leave the studio, the stone will be on that place and state as at the beginning.
But it happened. Naturally, I didn’t expect and may be this magic Kristina meant.
I put a stone on a white paper
something that yet exists, real and in this case physical
in a flash it becomes just a document
invisible emotion and dust of memory
that everyone can feel but never knows
what it was in the reality

everything you have
everything you can
and even more
i will consume you
i will hurt you
i will devour you
until you disappear
then, of course
i will replace you
