This piece looks at temptation… the first image of desire or longing, the first expresion, the most direct manifestation of desire as we bring it to life. In the expression of temptation you give clearly, you do not hide, you do not mistake. But it is also an act of annulation as it is so strong that you want to pull it back immediately. It is a furtively short space, this space of expression, as it leads to the realization of absence with a strong flavor of regret: “Desirabilis”.
