Roi Soleil

Roi Soleil

Albert Serra is once again drawn by the death rattle of Louis XIV, although this time he does not go for a chamber drama and a baroque decor. Instead, he opts for an aseptic void, a carmine whirlpool that resembles a blood-bathed entryway to hell. Like an indiscreet voyeur of pain and decay, his camera devours every inch of a mortally wounded beast that roars, screams and raves, just before he draws his final breath. Before death, human power will always seem nugatory and ludicrous.
