Suzanne au bain (Suzannah bathing)

1998

super 8 triptych, 3 super 8 projectors, super 8 loops, color and black and white, green plastic-coated cloth

300 cm wide

An upside-down woman's bust veils and unveils itself. This black and white image is surrounded by constant zooms on coloured plants. On the ground, cutouts of green oilcloth: on the left side, a collection of lentisc leaves, ont the right side, of holm oaks. The apparatus tries to create a tension between the perception of incidental elements and the subject of the story (Suzannah's body as an object of desire).
