Leviathan, CGI animácia, 2015

The video is an audio-visual discourse on a drapery that covers a non-present
body. The folds of the fabric, their dynamism and musical composition which the
artist has composed and recorded render the volatility and angst of
impermanence which we view as a part of the human yearning. The nostalgia and
sentiment are balanced by the ‘eternal’ erotic drive in the loop of the unfulfillable
story, an ecstasy without the climax. Georges Didi-Huberman with his essay Ninfa
Moderna: Essai sur le drapé tombé represents a mere marginal character.
