Product Description

A drivel is a short story written in a style reminiscent of Witold Gombrowicz, though its meaning gets lost in the continuous intertwining of characters, their stories and their memories.

A text written by Keren Cytter for fun, that (in the artist’s words) is “not about anything,” though it actually has a lot to say about Cytter’s work in general, to the extent that it exemplifies her constant investigation of possible ways of “representing” and “narrating.”

The surreal atmosphere, the sense of suspension and the complex relationships of the characters remind us of the sequences of her films and that microcosm of affects they stage, where humor and pathos, fiction and reality, desire and nostalgia continually mingle, rebound and overlap.
