“What looks like destruction is really just ‘disposal’, getting something out of sight and out of mind. It still is.” (Brad Inwood on Empedocles Fragment 18/DK 12)
Next week I will be going to Milan for the opening of the new William E. Jones exhibition at Galleria Raffaella Cortese. The exhibition presents works, in two different formats, that ostensibly deal with the CIA: the film Psychic Driving about their secret psychiatric experiments performed on unwitting victims and their declassified documents of blacked out information.
However, as with Jones’ exhibition Heraclitus Fragment 124: Automatically Illustrated, in Los Angeles at the David Kordansky Gallery last year, there is more to his interest in the CIA than meets the eye. Just ask Empedocles!
