Confession or Tinder of Sin

JOSEP PALAU I FABRE, 2000

 

Palau i Fabre, a firm follower of Picasso, is one of my three. Confession or tinder of sin is his most poetic and yet obscene work. One of his most recurrent themes was sexual incitement. One day I asked him what he would want to become if he were human, to what he responded: “A bull”. I dramatize his warning of the possible jealousy between the audience and the show. Place: a church with a confessional and a communion table. Actors, completely naked.
