This sculptor is caged in a den — his mind.
He’s building a shrine to a goddess with his bare hands. He’s dedicated wholly to his cause. It’s all he exists for, because that is his fate, his curse, and his only way to redemption.
Next to his apartment is a den of sin, lust and sex. Here, the art of sex is physical, all-consuming, worshipped and revered in totality.
In the frenzied activities of both dens, the art transforms the artists.
It’s a dark, intense and depraved world.
They achieve ultimate enlightenment.
Ultimate release, redemption.
