A Kafka Parable 1986-1987

During the exhibition of A Kafka Parable at Galerie Michel Tetreault (Montreal, Quebec), the entire short text of A Knock at the Manor Gate, by Franz Kafka was handed out to visitors. Eight sentences within the story appeared in italics. Those 8 sentences are the titles for the 8 paintings. Using the story as a source, a completely different narrative was developed, thereby allowing for a double reading of Kafka's parable.
