The Insides of the Body in Grief (ongoing) 

The films below are part of a series triggered by Luc Tuymans’ triptych painting of horizontal flowers, titled Embitterment, which is a study in emotional states. Tuymans describes his painting as ‘an emotional self-portrait that coincides with the body, showing the inside of the body.’ This film series interested in the diverging dynamics of the upright erect, external pedestrian body and the internal, apprehending, grieving body, which may feel, at times, to be wilting like the horizontal flowers.
