INTRODUCTION

“THE THEATRE, that tears Anna’s pictures up, one can expectant name both: theatre of life and theatre of death. It knows only possible stage: the scene of the coincidence of life and death.

Without any curtain, everything occurs before the eyes of the spectator: the game of mortality as that of liveliness.

Finitude and Infinity make pact in scenes of disturbing Evidence (…).

Michel Foucault says he is a “doctor“, a “diagnostician“. His thinking is an operation on the cadaver of the past.

He writes with a scalpel.

Anna does the same as a painter.

She paints with knives and swords“.
