Curator, art critic and lecturer at the Sorbonne, Sinziana Ravini is known for her “exhibition-novels.” The Black Moon is «a film-exhibition» that presents an encounter between a man and a woman visiting an exhibition.

While one searches only for a fleeting tryst, the other aspires to finding true love. Fleeting tryst or true love: which will triumph?

We all look at it as we wake up, and again as we leave our homes in the morning, throughout the day and before we go to sleep; our eyes have evolved to sense it acutely and green plants harness its energy, mostly in the blue and red regions of the spectrum, which is why they appear green: it is the light that makes life on earth possible. Yet as a subject for art it is relatively ignored. The Californian sculptor James Turrell uses it as a primary art material, building 'Sky spaces' - enclosures open to the sky to present light as solid colour. The German Romantic Landscape painter Caspar David Friedrich (1774 - 1840) notably captured the sublime qualities of the sun at dawn and dusk and of the moon at night.
