The sensation of having veered off the path. Of being asleep with your eyes wide open. Of being erased and slowly drained of colour. Of being a copy of a copy of a copy… Of being left to wander out in the cold. The sensation of your flaws being exposed, bit by bit, in a photo-bath.

 

Albumen delves into the existential sensations and harmful co-dependencies of Jessa, a talented artist who abandoned her craft to work in an office and to model for her former mentor, photographer Danielle. In a ritual of sorts, Jessa gives blood every 56 days, in order to give her life meaning. At the clinic, she meets nurse and lover Lucas—both he and Danielle corner Jessa to reveal the things she’s running from, pushing her to her breaking point. Non-linear and poetic, Albumen creates a world of tension between mystery, sex and pain and dives into Jessa’s emotional world with true expressionism.
