A moist fresco of the act and the viewing of masturbation. Master where are you. Not shouted research, but instead a telluric implosion, the observation of a disappearance, a useless SOS hurled among paper notebooks, protective nature, cars whose motors are turned off, and forgotten nests. Orphaned of now-distant masters, engraved bodies discover momentary burrows for solitary coitus like fleshly animals, dark havens in which to die – and hold their breath until the next shipwreck.

“The roots of this film lie in The Garden of Earthly Delights by Bosch and Mirabili visioni e consolazioni by Saint Angela of Foligno. Bosch sanctions the impossibility of one single, shared, and objective story, in favor of the observer-voyeur who creates his film with the tesserae at his disposal, the bodies scattered without any hierarchy or gender distinctions, spied upon like in the finale of Salò-Sade by Pasolini: the coitus, having been dismantled, has no planned outline but only shameless exposure. Angela da Foligno embeds the capitulations of her sanctity in ardent words: the compulsive reiteration of the act and the lust of the images – on paper or in the mind – transform the thoughts of bodies and words into fleshly form.”
