De Chirico and Carrà’s narratives do not allow us to rely on assumed theories of knowledge or learning. They request and prompt interpretation through the aporetic grounds of the enigma. Nothing is accepted or assumed as knowledge by being simply there. Perhaps unlike philosophical notions of metaphysics, metaphysical art claims the 34 CHILDHOOD’S GRAMMAR right to take on the enigma as the givenness of truth, and by its familiar whereabouts we find our way into it by exiting what is normally expected of it.
