ILIOS (towards your red light)
ILIOS (towards your red light) speaks of a metamorphosis, a slow passage from shadow to light, an endogenous and exogenous path, from love to obsession with the sun, towards an attempt to analyze the impermanence of memories, of grafts, joints between bodies, towers, maternal warmth and the distorted, mythicized, desired figure of Flavia. A sick need to retain and distil an experience as simple as love, to then end up with the creation of an essence that goes outside of its original form, no longer true, so idealized that it loses its point of origin, dirty with nature, which allows its variety and its survival. It therefore led to an interlocking between our need to sediment these images and create a layer where life rather than death could permeate.How to look the sun straight in the eye and then give its colors to the rest of the world. Following this astronomical phenomenon called redshift, that of approaching a source of heat, towards a star, while the temperature of her light changes, warming me and warming her.
