Opium_37 (print)

On the eve of World War II, in a Parisian café, Anaïs Nin and June Miller meet again after spending years apart. There, they share the space with some of Paris’s notorious and eccentric artists who are an orchestra of contrasting voices, reflecting on art and misery, creativity and identity, female sexuality and power. They battle with words and wills, a lingering violence in the air. Inspired by the lives of Nin, Miller, and Antonin Artaud, Catherine Léger explores the language of power and the role of art for its creator and the world around them.
