THE UNDRESSER

A woman is covered with a dozen of clothes that she takes off while reciting enigmatic and haunting sentences. She will never get naked as if this ritual gesture was a reaon to say what she has to say.

"A woman is taking off a shirt, that reveals
another shirt, which she takes off, that reveals
another shirt which she takes off, that reveals
another shirt which she takes off, that reveals
another shirt, and the peace and nudity are
definitely out of reach."
