Vase/Painting/Volcano

“Emma Hamilton was an 18th century performance artist. Her husband collected her, like a vase, like a painting, like a volcano. She was taught the art of pleasing, and imitated art instead of life. Then other artists painted her, and what we have, is a copy, of a copy, from a story, derived from a myth — kinda like religion. She performed “attitudes” — reenacting famous mythical characters — without noise, with only movement. She is a statue, she is desire, she is for man.”
