Grammar of the Neanderthal is quasi-synonymous with grammar of the primitive. Grammar of the primitive is quasi-homonymous with grammar of the “plumitif”. Plumitif, in the dictionary, means: a pen-pusher, a scribbler, a bad writer. In short, he who takes up the pen (the “plume”) by default, and as a default.
In the movement of this breakdown, I wished to introduce the acceleration of a fable, a sort of Fall of Icarus, in which a triple sun brings together Women, Indians and Jews. Populations each with its own plumage, respectively: in their posteriors, in their headdresses, and in their undecidable and frozen bank accounts, where Switzerland acts as a kind of forgetful old aunt. Being neither Indian nor a woman, I do not feel very comfortable reading publicly this piece of mourning and apology. But then I thought: one is never very comfortable reading in public. And even further: for God’s sake, what does a plumitif want?
