Thérèsa Plane is a mythological love story of a woman and a frog, told as a contemporary fairy tale of poetic transformations and dislocations that follows a circular narrative course, through the imaginary and the everyday. With verbal and visual play, Nyst assembles autobiographical references, symbolic objects and linguistic signs to construct a fascinating philosophical and psychological discourse. A dreamlike space resonates with the emblematic language of Nyst's lyrical narration. Against a flat, white ground, isolated objects are inscribed with iconographic significance. Metaphoric and formal allusions to the rectangular confinement of the video screen, with nighmarish scenes of rupture and disorientation from a horror film, as Nyst creates an enigmatic theater of the surreal.
