INSOMNIA is about revealing movement, that of the body, which perceives and writes history, and that of history, which is a flux of man’s acts and moments. In continuity with her research into the body and movement, Regina Virserius puts the female figure, incarnated by the Queen of the Persians, at the centre of the project. Through its cutting out, she seeks to reveal the body’s movement, to capture its physical presence and gravity. The body appears progressively: it loses its footing, it slides, falls, turns and overturns. Like a puzzle, the image of the woman forms from elements of the body and historic representations: Aphrodite, Hermaphrodite, and Faith.
