Sacra Orgia is a video about losing the meaning of a gesture by repeating it endlessly. 4 men and 5 women kissing each other in circle, in a ceremonial-like game. The kiss is transmitted sequentially and repeatedly, and every time the circle is complete, one person disappears from the ritual, and so on, until only one man remains in the scene. Can he kiss himself on his own lips? Does the kiss have any meaning when he doesn't have anyone to kiss?
