Suicide Artist is a dark comedy that " takes place " in the setting of a gallery - in the middle of the forest. Two speakers hang lashed together from a branch into the gallery space, emitting a woman's voice accompanied by a blue spot of light on the wall, telling of her love affair with a suicidal artist. This morbidly comic story, in interplay with the stage-like tableau surrounded by undergrowth and musty smell, is all about transience and tells of success and failure in life.
