Papillon d’amour

Nicholas Provost, Belgian, 2003, 4 minutes

By subjecting fragments from Akira Kurosawa’s film Rashomon to a mirror effect, Provost creates an imaginative scene of a woman’s reverse chrysalis into an imploding butterfly. This physical audio-visual experience produces skewed reflections upon love, its lyrical monstrosities, and a wounded act of disappearance.
