A.F. Vandevorst installation.

"Beauty is an omnipresence of death and loveliness, a smiling sadness that we discern in nature and all things, a mystic communion that the poet feels."

— Charlie Chaplin

a girl sleeping in a hospital bed in her a.f. vandevorst dress. but here, the girl as well as the mattress and pillow are made out of candle wax. once lit, what starts as a perfect image will slowly melt and perish during the biennale.
