s’approcher

s’approcher

Synopsis:
Marie-Madeleine d’Artemisia Gentileschi puts her right hand on her heart, extends her left hand and, in a look of rapture surrenders to the other.
The loved object, the one desired outside the self. We are moved by it.
Incarnating the gestural quality and expression of baroque painting by attempting to reanimate these frozen instants; but when it comes to my own body, equally moved by other desires, that which is visceral is imposed.
