Sigmund's Shorts: In the Flesh (2016)


‘In The Flesh' (2016) is a 5-min artist film by Adeline de Monseignat inspired by Alison Leitch's text 'Visualizing the Mountain' (2007) about the marble quarry as being 'alive', 'weeping at night' and having a 'soul'. In this mother-to-daughter relationship, the artist plays the role of The Sculpture, of marble skin and human flesh, becoming increasingly more alive, discovering the malleability of her own body, a creature that yearns to reconnect with her roots and crawl back into her mother's womb, the quarry. By bringing to light the quarry’s ability to ‘live’, the film also exposes its potential to ‘die’.
