First Fragment

Not aware of values and norms, the human kind was lost in disorientation and hopelessness. Myths and legends have drawn the world. They did not know, what it is that drives an artist to his work, neither they were not moral themselves, but still they were interested in fine arts and aesthetes to give a new meaning to their lives.

The parallel worlds got tangled up. To escape from the vicious circle of unawareness, a couple of people set out on an expedition for a consistent muse who does not point with the finger at moral and religious dogmas. This was the birth of a new muse. A muse to give hold to the people.

One of the pioneers, Jaluna, started her quest and got to know the young artist Jérèmie. The two made the illusion come true. Protected from criticism, they wondered how they breathed life in their vision of a new reality.

If seeking for a muse means to break out of the vicious circle of nonage, the muse expresses a world full of allegories, fairy tales, myths and legends. To live one’s imagination does not mean to escape from the unreal. To read a book builds up a virtual reality, the muse’s window to her fantastic world.

Our imagination is stimulated in scenes deriving either from daydreams or normal life. We build fantastic structures that allow to enter real life and that design the constructed reality. In my story it is the muse herself who generates the imagined world and who fulfills this parallel world. In contrast to narrations with usually hidden switches, I strongly intend to reveal the flip between the worlds to the reader.

Necrolog means to draw back the morbid normality and to concentrate on the exciting obscurity. This is a criticism to the irreducibility of the aesthetic experience. The muse is set into the center of the aesthetic observation; therefore Necrolog presents a concept of demontating the destructive tristesse. With the help of paper, Necrolog models parables, fairy tales and myths. What is not possible to be formulated aesthetically would be condemned to “die”.

The muse’s charisma is her truth. Charisma is autonomous, truth is sovereign. “To-be-special” is the prevalent character in art. Aesthetic autonomy is contradiction, rejection, negation of what does not present art and consequently it is the obituary on the afflicting tristesse of our everyday life.
