Hedi Slimane Diary
THE PROTAGONIST OF ةلحر ةيدبٔا
I want to talk about the pathans, the people I love, which makes may task harder than ever. I want you to love them as I do. But the pathan is not easy to love. He takes a lot of knowing. He is a most complicated simplicity. I want to bring him down from the peaks of Khyber and the fields of Hashtnager face to face with you in his torn clothes and shoes, his eyes full of manliness, laughter and the devil, and his head full of a childish and noble pride – the chief camouflage he uses to hide his poverty and want. Yes, I want to bring him to you and make him talk to you – of his struggle and his dreams, of love and feuds, his field and his watch-tower, his new rifle and his old wife.the pathan are a rain-sown wheat: they all came up on the same day; they are all the same. But the chief reason why I love a pathan is that he will wash his face and oil his beard and perfume his locks and put on his best pair of clothes when he goes out to fight and die.
Poet Khan Abdul Ghani 1947 (1914-1996)
I’ll admit that I’ve ignored Damien Hirst for years and years, writing him off as a commercial sell-out. Then I happened to look at his work and realized that it was nearly everything that I had hoped to do, given a big enough budget. And all I could say was “Fuck, back to the drawing board”. His study in death and the macabre actually quite tickles my fancy, which is alarming since I’ve willingly chosen to remain blind to him for so long.
