15 - I draw much more than I ought to draw because it brings me back you, Dorte Jelstrup (Denmark)
My video deals with the representation of the male nude in the classic medium of drawing and from the point of view of a "feminine gaze” of longing and desire. My video also deals with a prior loss of the desired male nude and points towards the feminine creativity and the formation of symbolic meaning in the act of drawing as a possible compensation for the loss.
