Additional Information

Keeping within the style of the Italian Baroque masters, ‘Dépendance’ shares a world of stark contrasts and rhythmic flowing lines. A dark and misty background, whence the human figures seem to delicately emerge as unaware actors suddenly caught by a beam of light. The light treatment, specifically and deliberately used in order to enhance every single muscular contraction involved into the movement represented, is as well aimed to highlight the psychological viewpoint of relationship between the subjects.

The focussed expression of the male figure, opposed to the complete abandonment of his female  counterpart, creates a perfect balance and makes of the two bodies a whirling chiasmus where one part does not make any sense without the other.

In Dépendance, there is an utter drama, intensified by the theatrical composition and by allegorical nudity of the characters: in a certain way, modernity flows through the serried network of tradition, showing us the immense trickiness of a real statement of faith — a mutual addiction repeating itself whenever two human beings are ready to taste it.
