Nihil is a French artist residing in Norway. “Ventre” is the name of his ongoing project, which includes short, cryptic texts and images filled with symptoms of illness and rapture, often with a medieval, religious slant. He describes his work as “portraits of saints and martyrs who lost their humanity to drown in divine serenity”; the result is not a world filled with despair, but rather moments of transcendental bliss where the body exceeds its limits and suffering to attain sanctity.
