Felix Gonzalez-TorresUntitled (Perfect Lovers) 1991. Clocks, paint on wall.
Untitled (Perfect Lovers) consists of two clocks, which start in synchronisation, and slowly, inevitably fall out of time due to the failure of the batteries and the nature of the mechanism. In a moving comment on his personal experiences, the piece refers to Gonzalez-Torres’ HIV positive partner Ross Laycock, and his slow decline and inevitable death due to AIDS. The clocks act as two mechanical heartbeats; representative of two lives destined to fall out of sync, and holds a poignant poetry about personal loss and the temporal nature of life.
“Don’t be afraid of the clocks, they are our time, time has been so generous to us…We conquered fate by meeting at a certain time in a certain space…we are synchronized, now forever. I love you.”

Now we’re slipping near the edge
Holding something we don’t need
Oh, this delusion in our heads
Is gonna bring us to our knees

So come on, let it go
Just let it be
Why don’t you be you
And I’ll be me

Everything that’s broke
Leave it to the breeze
Why don’t you be you
And I’ll be me

Girls are trained to say, ‘I wrote this, but it’s probably really stupid.’ Well, no, you wouldn’t write a novel if you thought it was really stupid. Men are much more comfortable going, ‘I wrote this book because I have a unique perspective that the world needs to hear.’ Girls are taught from the age of seven that if you get a compliment, you don’t go, ‘Thank you’, you go, ‘No, you’re insane.’

Ever noticed how your body is trying to keep you safe?

dangergays:

When you hurt yourself and don’t put a band-aid on it because you think you deserve the pain

                                            Your body creates a natural band-aid to keep you protected.

When you want to tear open your skin

                                            Your skin fights back, creates a tough skin of scar tissue to prevent it happening again.

When you take all those pills because you’ve had enough

                                             Your stomach contracts to get rid of them

Because your body

                  Wants you

To live.
