Sphinx (Netherlands)

This ceramics producing group dates back as far as the 1830s. It was once the largest producer of ceramics in Europe. Even though the factory is now abandoned and destined to be redeveloped into a series of luxury apartments, its heritage – a collection of approximately 60.000 earthenware objects depicting the history of Sphinx – will keep its memory alive forever.

    Welkenraedt is half an hour from Aachen. That gives a sense of reality to what we are doing, to art , made real. . The pleasure becomes real. Not abstract. But warm and comfortable . With so much time at disposal. With no hurry. Lying side by side that bare bodies touch. Like in an art splendid. Turning to eachother. Coming closer. Always the question of finding the access to eternal truth, to the source of happiness. And happy when one finds it. Inside the sphinx. Staying longer in the sphinx . Concentration. What is the secret of the sphinx ? Silence. The secret can be revealed anytime. It is revealed. It overpowers us. We melt in eachother’s embrace. We stay satisfied now and forever. None of us wants to move somewhere else.
