Xerxes was the King of Persia in 500 B.C. and could be considered today as a symbol of « blitzkrieg ». His aggressive instincts allowed him to defeat the Greek army in a quite short period of time thanks to his great armada.

Xerxes can be considered as a symbol of aggression, of invasion and let's say of penetration by all meanings of the word. Invasion implies a sexual connotation, it's obvious !


This sonorous material bearing the same name tries through sonorous metaphors but also through direct resonances to concretise this notion of ultra-violent agression inherent to all periods of Humanity.

We can unfortnately deduce that if Humanity had never known its wars, History would be meaningless. Unfortunate !

Having in mind the contemporary history, for instance the Second world war, one can say that everything is assembled here : barbarity combined to technology, to death organisation (may it be communist or fascist), but also to the first high-tech propaganda embryos !


Today in 2011 all systems, and this thanks to new techniques of « information », keep on bombarding and formating the masses with high-flying high-tech systems suitable to their ideals.

One can deduce that today Humanity didn't change one iota since the dawn of time ! Technology being only crutches and prothesis.


The end of tyrannosaurus isn't coming any time soon !
