Appetitus Desiderium, Adriana Aboim
We are interested in the "path of desire" as an uncertain moment of demand and as a possibility for action. Neglecting desire or failing to believe in it closes us to the limits of the known possibilities, generates apathy, and does not allow us to discovery the unknown.
When we are afraid of desire, we will never reach the freedom from our own fears, which will then be what we most desire. Desire make us question the rules, our certainties and what appears as right or wrong, or as good or evil. Desire makes us imperfect, erratic, contradictory, and therefore human beings.
