Ceinture Chaste

Chastisty Belt, 2011
Belt in copper and brass, engraved and embossed, silk thread

Inspired as much by the fantasy of the chastity belt of the Middle Ages as by Renaissance armor, this object reveals the inherent tensions of the seduction.Ambivalent object that hides and reveals at the same time, it is a weapon of seduction.This accessory, in the Middle Ages, splitting the body into two parts, thus marking what was “below the belt” as something impure.The Chastity Belt video reverse this conception in showing the sexual part of the body as a portrait of face.
