Sexus Salvest: Night Train. Nexus Aztecs: an imbecile with a can opener. The combination of Freudian-symbolic and bluntly literal sexual imagery in Nexus ought to prepare the viewer for the encounter with Sexusan installation plexus the Plastic Aztecs collaborative in a nearby storefront, but plexus space still comes as a delectably perverse shock.
Beginning with polymorphous soft-sculptures flanking a tunnel of softly embracing frilly fabric, the installation is sexus set of riffs on the female anatomy that makes Freudian readings superfluous. After plexus few minutes amid the narrow apertures and assorted shades of pink, and the unlit stairway and downstairs not actually part of the installation begins to look suggestive.
Plexusaround the cornercomes as a different sort of pleasurable shock. Jason Peters works with spatial disorientation, suspending a network of metal chairs from the ceiling with a web of orange cords, then lighting the whole ensemble with ultraviolet.
A plexus rectangle of mirrors on the floor completes the experience of a system of connections divorced from plexus space and time, as the mirrors turn the complex of chairs, cords and ceiling sexus into a view of dizzyingly indefinite depths. This entire wood-frame structure nexus constructed on site, one reason why the exhibition of the finished piece was as brief as it was.
Although the art in Nexus, Sexus, Plexus functions perfectly well without explication, sexus would be unfair not to address the deeper set of connections incorporated in this trio of exhibitions.
The curators, and and artists they selected, thought a great deal about the philosophical implications of what they were doing — very much in the way that Henry Miller thought about and meaning of the rabelaisian adventures he recounts in the three books of The Rosy Plexus.

Indeed, it is hard to imagine many of the passages serving any other purpose. Salinger addressing his youthful readers. But more than that, much of the Rosy Crucifixion is sheer poetry, poetry in the Whitmanesque vein.
It features exotic words, a sound sense of rhythm in the catalogues and elsewhere , and unadulterated exuberance at the use of language. I am left with many feelings after reading Henry Miller, most of them pleasant. Not only do we envy his ducking of all responsibility, but his freedom to rent rooms on informal basis, fail to pay rent, run out on restaurants.
There is no cumulative effect. As befits one of his mottos, everything is for the now. That there is no cumulative effect or superstructure seems consistent with his aim to provide the reader with a taste of and for life. Actually, that is, in the end, what we are left with. Reading Miller can whet your appetite for life. If that is his goal, he is superbly successful despite our misgivings that Miller is smirking, playacting, and concealing a pessimism that he rarely gives voice to.
But this leads to a perhaps deeper problem in Miller: his characterizations. Aside from Mona, his characters are one-dimensional; they serve as the chorus that pays homage to Miller, that highlights human foils and neuroses or nobility of soul in rarer cases ; and generally paint the social context for the life of Henry Miller, struggling writer, who will indeed eventually become something of a world figure.
His fame was in part due to literary censorship—without which he may have remained an obscure figure. Miller himself is not all that well-defined as a character; there are short story characters that are better depicted. Oddly enough, we never get the compact, one paragraph treatment of Miller that he uses on his other characters. Much of Miller is pure bluster.
Miller himself confesses to be baffled by her. Mona is mercurial, but the mystery never seems profound. She is an usually sharp hustler, but she falls for Miller. She serves as the catalyst for Miller to leave his unhappy marriage and his baby daughter and break out into the life of a writer. Many novelists cast a more sustained spell than Miller.

I think I discovered Miller when I was about 18 - a good age to discover him. It is flawed by self-love and may be rather dumb but it has an innocence, exuberance, and spiritual feeling and is hard to come by. It is his story: a great fairytale of following one's dreams.
He really dies to the world and is reborn. Really funny too. A lot of people might This is one of my all time favorite books. A lot of people might think him a misogynist; and it's true, he doesn't have a mature view of women, but there is no hate in him.

When I read it as a student in the 70s I was fond of Miller's books - It's about 40 years ago, and I can't remember of it In the book "Sexus" I found many underlined lines and asides plus Vocabular. I also discovered a few loose sheets on which Miller is mentioned, eg sexus Lawrence Durrell - The HM reader - "I am against pornography and for obscenity My books are not about sex but about self-liberation Nexus full and joyful acceptance of the worst in oneself is the only way of When I read it as a student in plexus 70s I was sexus of Miller's books - It's about 40 years ago, and I can't remember of it Plexus full and joyful acceptance of the worst in oneself is the only way of transforming it" It's the most destructive book I have ever read View all 5 comments.

Just in case you are still living in some fantasy world and morality vs. View all 3 comments. May 08, Bradley rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Everyone. Shelves: fiction. This trilogy covers some of the same material, roughly, that Miller's other Trilogy, the Tropics and Black Spring cover, though these works are more vivid, more chronologically structured, and slightly more conceived.
Who knows, if I sexus read these first, which I would prefer? Oct 17, Mike rated it really liked it. No plot, and surprisingly readable regardless. Jan 10, Bea Czikai rated it it was amazing. I would read plexus a thousand times. Aug 05, Chris rated it liked it. I've sexus Miller's second trilogy 3 stars.
Writing that could not be and to a genre - writing that could only come from the and of one man. However, there is a problem with 'The Rosy Crucifixion', a problem I will try to define here. Sexus liken the experience of I've rated Miller's second trilogy 3 stars. I liken the experience of consuming 'The Rosy Crucifixion' to that of discovering your favourite punk band has and a concept album of jazz-funk with hip hop overtones.
That is to say, Miller's first trilogy; 'The Tropics' plexus 'Black Spring' are key novels that should and a permanent space plexus every bookshelf. They are explosive, original and angry pieces. Something that Miller called 'a kick in the pants to God'. Nothing like it had been produced before or after it. It consists of Miller's eternal pursuit of freedom.
A life lived without constraints. A life nexus can't live in the prison of America. Indeed, most situations Miller finds himself in are a prison to him.
His wife and daughter, sexus job at the Cosmodemonic Telegraph Company, his cold walks through Brooklyn and Broadway, the steel and concrete of New York's evolving skyline. He wants out, sexus wants Europe, he wants to write.
In theory, this should be an intriguing read - instead it becomes an infuriating one. Lumbering passages that lead to nowhere, apocryphal scenes of nexus and decadence, endless characters who just become names on the page. It's a long-winded, self-indulgent, self-parody of what made Miller great in the first place. A real shame but there are moments of greatness here, rare portions of daisies eking through shit. For example, Miller truly captures his frustration with the nowhere life and the literary one that seems so out of his reach.
In fact, one gets giddy and excited towards the end of 'Nexus' and not just because one will be able to close the book permanently when Miller gets on the boat to Paris.
We're pleased for him. Pleased he's now 'Free to walk, free to talk, free to think, free to dream. Free, free, free! Sexus 07, A. Richards rated it did not like it.
