The fear of baring oneself with a clear cut.
The fascination with hidden beauty.
The fascination with the power of hypocrisy.
The effort to achieve satisfaction where there is no bottom.

What is the weight of your desire? What can be measured and seen and what can only be experienced?
To bare yourself, to denude, to undress, to reveal your emotions, to touch your own body, to get close to the core of yourself. Which of these is really dangerous and risky?

What Is the Weight of Your Desire? treats on the question whether by denuding ourselves we truly expose who we are, our soul and our desires. And, also, whether nudity is a necessary means of genuine self-exposure, at all. The border of our identity encircles everything that may be called intimate, fear, desire or vulnerability. The very same border proves that nudity becomes an issue also in moments when we don’t see it. Is it safe to get closer to this border in order to explore it? The terrain surrounding it is changeable, dangerous and tricky. It is an unavoidable thing to enter the territory but watch out! When you return, you’ll never be the same again.
