“In a deservedly famous text, Vilém Flusser said that there are those interested in fog, where it is barely possible to distinguish one thing from another, and those eager to clear away the fog and display the differences that distinguish things. But whichever stance is adopted, there is no denying that everything is foggy, these are our spiritual surroundings, and nobody is out of the haze. Memory, Eros, death, traditions, families and diaries are pure fog. Kisses? Mist. The poetry and artwork of Leila Danziger battle against the fog, knowing that the struggle is utterly in vain. Organizing death in rubber stamps, diaries, figures, meters? Life as well? Why? Guimarães Rosa would say: to summon negativity.” Carlito Azevedo, O Globo, 27/12/ 2014
