Arabian Dance (or the Reverse Striptease)
2011
copyright of the artist.

'Striptease - at least Parisian striptease - is based on a contradiction: Woman is desexualized at the very moment when she is stripped naked. We may therefore say that we are dealing in a sense with a spectacle based on fear, or rather on the pretence of fear, as if eroticism here went no further than a sort of delicious terror, whose ritual signs have only to be announced to evoke at once the idea of sex and its conjuration.'

Roland Barthes, Striptease, in Mythologies, 1957
