MalaparteAbout this photograph
The face of the forlorn and melancholic character is redundant in Phaedra Brody?s work. The photograph Malaparte was taken on the estate of the eponymous villa. A tribute to the film Contempt (Le Mépris) filmed in the same place, the couple represents the modern Camille and Paul. Yesterday?s lovers continue, through habit, to take the same path but are already no longer linked. The woman seems the most detached. Inward looking, she seems vacant. Brody?s feminine figure is a Hitchcock blonde. With an icy beauty, she is unapproachable and trivial, as well as sacred and savage. If not sensual, her sexual dimension is suggested and associated with dangerousness.
