Seranade Pour Sarane

Pour Sarane Alexandrian

Le mat in s’est eteint a la Bibliotheque des Alchimistes
Collectionneur d’amis fantomes rebelles
Endormi avec des lunettes de catastrophe apocalyptique
La main de l’historien a cote des dessins de Victor Brauner
Pres de crayons et des enregistrements de Gherasim Luca
Serein malgre les asteroi”des qui atterrissent dans son assiette
Rafraîchi par le souffle écrit de ses poèmes
Rafraichi par le souffie ecrit de ses poèmes
Dernier surr-gonaute traversant le Styx a la rame
Ephemere navigateur de passage entre les pages de Superieur Inconnu
Exasperation de la traduction Superieur lnconnu,
Le guerrier surreel
Extreme Sarane, supreme Sarane
Architecte de la gloire d’Andre Breton
Exclu avec Brauner par les surrealistes en 1948
Rcndu fou par les poupees tomirees de Bellmcr
Douleur des forêts d’Ernst, ivre de pluie
La façon qu’avait Herold de rudoyer l’art l’inspirait
Sarane Alexandrian, que l’on n’ oubliera jamais
dont on se souviendra it jamais, meme dans le plus pro fond silence.

    I was so honoured to have met Sarane. I was in Paris in 1999 and bought his book on Jacques Herold. I took the opportunity to telephone him and, introducing myself as a friend of José Pierre, arranged a meeting. Knowing the meeting would be in French I was a bit nervous because my language skills are slightly limited, but I went to his apartment and surrounded by Dorothea Tanning and Victor Brauner paintings we managed a most cordial talk., When he offered to include a work of mine in the final edition of the 20th Century for Supériore Inconnu, I was absolutely elated. The fact that he started the journal the year I was born, 1947, was also interesting. The focus on esoteric subjects in relation to Surrealism made me decide to send him “The Father C.R.C. Memorial, an acrylic on panel from 1975. It was published later in 1999 and I later included him and the journal entry in my film A New Arcadia from 2003.
