Alexis Teyie: Deferment. Opacity. Accounting.

Museums are my second favourite place to cry. With the slightest provocation from a dusty glass casing, I will unloose the ever elegant single tear; if encouraged by a pithy exhibition text, more fortifying variants follow: a bit of light sniveling all through to the blabbering lament, complete with ash and sackcloth. Our bodies are the most insightful docent in every museum tour.
