Tonight... Tonight I Pray
You and I, we share a passion and that my dear is rare. We have managed to establish a symbiotic monotheistic relation that worships a single God; art.
This my love is our religion.
I don't love you... I love the artist in you, the artist whose naïveté created Cookie Jesus, the artist that fuels my curator days with artgasms and isn't scared to push my boundaries, my buttons and my theories when I'm feeling philosophical in the middle of the night. The artist who indulges my curatorial queries and shatters my idealized notions of the art universe. Him...
Him I can't get enough of.
I have a love/hate relationship toward the you I feel, the you I sense, the you I blindly believe in... because sometimes... sometimes I wanna kiss you and punch you in the face at the same time. I see great potential in you, I see my own potential heighten in your presence.
Thus I want!
I want more... I want us to reach nirvana; an alternative art space of eternal meditation where my chi can flow free of judgement and pain... I wanna relinquish the nightly tears and trade them for glancing deep into your eyes in our Cathedrals; MoMA, Moca, Gagossian and Sotheby's.
I want to get to the bottom of the meaning of art by your side. I want us to pray to our saints: Koons, Prince and Hirst, while we hold each other's hand and walk into our version of heaven.
I want to take a pilgrimage.
I want us to travel into our deepest thoughts, and the lowest possible rings of hell (kitsch craft) together. I have thus allowed myself to dwell in a purgatory of my own making thinking of your scripture... But no longer!
I want instead to relinquish my relics at your altar and kneel in front of your all mighty desires. I want us to transcend this consciousness together into a new religion of our own making. I want to witness your resurrection time and time again in different mediums and iterations. I want to delve so deep into your aesthetic theory... that I taste your water as wine.
I want to write your bible!
I'll be your pope, you be my Messiah. Amen.
