THE FOOL This film is looking at the complexity in the relationship between the artist and its audience. How one cannot exist without one and other. How both sides crave the other's attention. However the role of the artist is more fragile as the artist depends on their audience. It's their livelihood. The border between love and hate is paper thin, and equally so is the relationship between private and public.
This film is also sidelining the role of the woman. The female portrait. The male gaze. The role of an artist - Do women/artists only see their selfworth, when looked through the eyes of the other, and therefore objectifying themselves?
