In Embodies, the creations of Dries Van Noten and John Everett Millais’s Ophelia meet for a psychedelic Picnic at Hanging Rock, where the transfiguration of bodies in textiles et vice versa takes place. A slow-motion noir based on suspended tensions, where the classical nature of the nymph meets its digital dopplegänger, and dresses start a dialogue with bodies transformed through layers of decomposing superimpositions that consume the images and end up revealing their ghosts.
