“Sesame is a solitary monolith in the desert. Split open and ajar, as if following an incantatory spell, it contains in its cavities the icons of domesticity. Sesame evokes the ambiguity of a fixed or imminent movement, but also of an uncertain time, between ruin and contemporaneity. Sesame is a sanctuary of light and shadows, without any direct view to the outside: a place for introspection in the immensity”.
