詩人 PoetsMadeleine Slavick & Steven Schroeder

At birth, we arrive on the earth somewhat blank. As we grow, we learn knowledge and how to make friends. Time passes, and we enter society and start a career. Maybe it is then that we realize that life is a circle of love, that we are moving from one loop to another, some liked, others not. We connect people from the various stages of our lives, and also disconnect. We make smaller circles, then bigger, bigger. Sometimes, bigger than the imagination.

In March, we offer a manifestation of the circle of love. Madeleine, after moving to live in New Zealand, is coming back to Hong Kong for a month. Steve Schroeder is also visiting Hong Kong from Chicago. They were both born in the United States, but it is in poetry where they met, and now meet again, to share ideas on connections, circles and love.

Nietzsche:

"G. Flaubert offers the clearest example among the French, and Richard Wagner among the Germans, in which the romantic faith in love and the future is transformed into the desire for the nothing,.. "

Nietzsche: "We may love the senses,
we have spiritualized
and made them artistic in every degree;
we have a right to all those things
which were most maligned until now."

Artes Voluptariae, "arts voluptuary" or "arts of sensual pleasure"

"Medicine attends to health, cosmetics to beauty and athletics to health, whilst pleasure is the concerti of the artes voluptuariae..."
