« Instead of the holy trinity: father, son, holy spirit, instead of the profane trinity: mother, family, state, instead of the social trinity: father, mother, children the film treats the real trilogy in 3 sections. What unites man and woman (not uniquely for sure, but what is being concealed) is the history of nature. » V.E.
I turn over the pictures of my voice in my head
AT / 2009 . 12 min.
" The voice is my identity, it is not body or spirit, it is not language or image, it is sign, it is a sign of the images, it is a sign of sensuality. It is a sign of symbols, it is boundary. It speaks the "split body", it is hidden in the clothing of the body, it is always somewhere else. The breath of life is its source." V.E.
