The nostalgy of presence. On quasi-ekphrasis of M. Krysinska


La force du désir, a novel by Marie Krysinska, encourages the reader
through the quasi-ekphrasis to expand his sense of sight and make the way
he looks at the images of his environment more friendly – images, which, in
potentia, could create works of art. Imaginative work is carried out through the
memories of artwork (author’s, reader’s and hero’s) that have multiple layers,
each formed by a specific moment of the past. The exploration of someone
else – a painter by his artwork – becomes a self-exploration. The text of a
novel is entirely structured by presence-absence of pieces of art. The memory
which transposes into another spacetime sphere reinforces the present by
adding to it an extraordinary, almost magical dimension. Nostalgy for the past
is at the same time longing for the present, as the past locked in the artworks
allows to capture the imponderabilia of present time, which otherwise would
be inevitably lost.
