“Stately, Yes”, 2006. Irmaveplab production Black adhesive letters on white wall, 47 x 250 cm. 1 050 Euros
Like many grandfathers, John Whiting used to read stories to his grandson. But rather than choosing children’s books, he preferred James Joyce’s Ulysses, particularly parts from what is known as Molly Bloom’s Soliloquy, the last chapter of the novel. Consequently and many years later, Pascal Bircher reads Ulysses. Followed by a comma, Stately is the first word of the book. Yes is the last one before the final full stop.
