About Pascal Le Coq

1964, Chartres/F
Pascal Le Coq must have read Borges a number of times to understand, or at least try to understand, the complexity of this novel. In it he quotes his friend Bioy Casares during a dinner in a villa on Calle Goana in Ramos Mejia, where a mirror and an encyclopedia made him discover Uqbar. Of course this is a fantasy of Borges, who liked to play with words as well as with worlds (both geographical as well as mental), but when Bioy recalled that one of the heresiarchs of Uqbar had stated that mirrors and copulation were abominable, Borges was lead on an intellectual chase that leads to the rest of the tale, as fantastic as it may sound. Far from this Argentine myth of the early XXs century, the young French artist Pascal Le Coq, born near Paris, started a quest in his artistic expression that seems as fantastic as the novel itself.
