The Mishima Suite

The extraordinary life and literary output of Mishima (Kimitake Hiraoka) provided the impetus and focus to trace many of the various facets of desire, from the carnal, libidinal and self destructive, to the ethereal, self-effacing and sublime.  Rather then literal illustrations of his life or novels, these works try to capture some measure of the psychological depth, diversity of expression, and convulsive beauty that attend Mishima’s logic of absence and his awareness of the generative power of desire.
