Dawn/ Daggry

Bildet David Bowie kjøpte av Odd Nerdrum i sin tid, på en rask Oslo-visitt, det henger i sitt storformat i hans leilighet i Soho på Manhattan.


Brian Eno kan avsløre at Bowie refererte til nettopp bildet Dawn i en mail til ham for 7 dager siden, hvor han mytisk nok signerte med signaturen Dawn og takket for vennskapet. Et bilde som kan sies å ha hatt stor betydning for ham.

«About a year ago we started talking about Outside – the last album we worked on together. We both liked that album a lot and felt that it had fallen through the cracks. We talked about revisiting it, taking it somewhere new. I was looking forward to that.

I received an email from him seven days ago. It was as funny as always, and as surreal, looping through word games and allusions and all the usual stuff we did.

It ended with this sentence: ‘Thank you for our good times, brian. they will never rot’.  And it was signed ‘Dawn’.»
