Papillon d'amour




Papillon d'amour

Video projection with sound, 4′, 2003

By subjecting fragments from the film Rashomon by Akira Kurosawa to the mirror effect, Provost creates a hallucinating scene of a woman‘s reverse chrysalis into an imploding butterfly. Papillon d’amour produces skewed reflections upon love, its lyrical monstrosities and wounded act of dissappearance.

Music: The Wrath of Köhn by Köhn AKA Jürgen De Blonde
