Date 2003/2023

Materials polaroid transfer

You are absent.

With your leaving, your absence has taken over, it has been photographed just as your presence has been photographed a little while ago.

Your life has distanced itself.

Only your absence remains now, body-less, without any possibility of reaching it, of falling prey to desire.

You are precisely nowhere.

Nothing remains of you but this floating absence, ambulatory, that fills the screen, that peoples by itself, why not?

That is how you stand: facing me, softly, in constant provocation, innocent, unfathomable.

– Marguerite Duras, The Atlantic Man
