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, the refracted worlds of Jim Davis and Jordan Belson fuse with Matthew Brandt’s landscapes, and dresses start a dialogue with bodies transformed through layers of superimpositions that consume the images and end up revealing their ghosts.
