bathroom

"closing the door and returning to vulnerability; one's face, one's feet against the floor tiles. a bathroom carries more than its simple hygienic utility. place of transition, place of turmoil, place of breath, place of introspection. towel fabric then presents its reassuring yet lightly rough softness, intimately enveloping our vessel."


Original French: "ermer la porte et retrouver sa vulnérabilité, son vrai visage, les pieds contre le carrelage. la salle de bain porte plus que sa simple utilité hygiénique. lieu de transition, lieu de pause, lieu de tourmente, lieu d'introspection. le tissu des linges offre alors sa douceur en enveloppant intimement nos membres."
