Strayed Sequins

Strayed Sequins


In Jean Genet’s vision of the universe, the lowest and the highest meet, and to descend into the limbo of horror and abjection is to ascend into the region of saints and angels.

“He who falls far enough and fast enough – even if he starts from an aeroplane and finishes up crashing through the glass roof of a prison – still carries remnants of stars caught up in his clothing, like stray sequins on the tights of a falling trapeze artist.” Jean Genet
