This experimental artist book integrates original paintings, archival photos, and B&W film images. With inherent dialogic qualities, it depicts the intense and poetic transformations of two lovers across time and space, with complex shifts in body and identity occurring within the dialogue of body contact, traced back to one of them assigned gender. As he obsessively photographs her body, she reconstructs his form, intertwining two gazes that resonate with robust yet fragile gender norms and infinite desires.
