Necrophilia

2006

Necrophilia is a disorder characterized by a sexual attraction to corpses. It is an expression of a subconscious need for a complete control over another person.

I can’t help but wonder what kind of a man in his right mind would be inclined to kiss a miraculously well preserved corpse of a beautiful female after finding it in glass coffin in the middle of the forest. It’s rather disturbing if you really think about it. There is only one logical explanation for this situation. He is a Necrophile.

There are strong elements of violence and often, explicit sexuality present in the vast majority of original fairy tales. It intrigues me to look at a fairy tale from a different perspective and create a visual narrative interpreting the romanticized a fable with the emphasis on its dark undertones.
