Everyone of us, during our lives, suffering from constant internal and external changes, that are, in fact, constant changes of our identity or endless process of dying and delivering of personal identity. In that way life becomes succession of continual dying.
Do we actually know each other and ourselves or we just know the image that we made about the others or us?
("LIFE IS A BITCH/JACK-POT")
One can never choose people that have the largest impact on his identity (family, neighbors, colleagues etc) but he gets them just like some combination on Jackpot machine.
(“Portrait of an unknown man with a beard”)
“Skin is deceptive. In life one only has one’s skin…but having and being are not the same. I never have the skin of what I am. I am never what I have”.
“La Robe”, Eugene Lemoine-Luccione
(“PERSONAL ? ID ? CARD”)
“I think of identity as being nomadic, multiple. We know only too well that identities pushed too far in one direction can be destructive. I consider myself able to move from one identity to another without any problem, to change and review these continually.”
