According to Alhacen’s Theory of Visual Perception, “Darkness makes beauty appear, for the stars only appear in darkness”. An element of the sinister throws beauty into starker relief, as in the early photography of Stanley Kubrick and a 1970 recording of Frederick Ashton’s Nocturne ballet. The legendary prima ballerina, Margot Fonteyn, seems to dance a beautiful solo, until the camera pans left and reveals a shadowy figure behind, for whom Fonteyn’s performance is a desperate entreaty. Likewise, Kubrick’s haunting images of Chicago in the forties are filled with eery details, glimpsed only at the last moment. When the shadowy figure finally advances into the light, Fonteyn falls to her knees in tears before him, undone. Inspired by the impulses explored by these two artists, Fonteyn is a scent of tender delicacy, laced with depravity.
