Dafne Salis

Korè - Black Sun

A fleshy veil separates us. An elusive fleeing screen cuts off what can be seen from what cannot be seen. What lies behind that has been perceived as inexistent. Invisible and yet powerful feeling of desire and pain and creativity and vitality. And one is driven towards it. Or not. The desire to acknowledge its existence, to celebrate it, moves me to unveil what is veiled without the will.  Korè is about light and darkness, generativity and loss, maternity, family and photographs. Darkness as comfortable, welcoming room where light comes in. In his Discourses on Dioptric, Descartes, describing vision's functioning, made me think a man in the darkroom only turn their gaze to the light that comes in. I place myself inside the darkroom, I live it. I am it. Inside and an outside: merged. One needs to inhabit the darkness to be able to see. But what happens to the dim, internal space that makes vision possible? Can it still be seen? Experienced? The title Korè, refers to Irigaray's essay Kore: Young Virgin, Pupil of the Eye.­
