Formation


I juxtaposed the snapshot of the Saint's face contorted in enjoyment with the closeup of his penis and the Countess's face at the centre of this frame to mark the point of decapitation/castration by the ‘blades of teeth and lips’ and the pinnacle of the Saint's desire: the entirety of which is witnessed by the o/Other. In this frame the Saint publicly 'loses face' and will remain 'dismembered' until he is corporeally and spiritually reconstituted in the penultimate and ultimate slides.
