The vanitas lightbox-photo refers to the classical painting genre – still life. The photographed fruits have earlier undergone a surgical suturing. Soft and fleshy, they remain an ideal phantom for surgeons to exercise. In this case, the artist combines them with a knot, which is going to irreversibly disintegrate after a moment. The tear remains. Recalls the failure. The desire to preserve this image and this body is too strong to give them up.
