"Thou art to me a delicious torment."
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
The suspense of a first touch, the certitude of coupling, the rawness of physicality, the quiet beauty of togetherness—"Delicious Torment" is an examination of emotional and physical attraction. Heat and cold, passion and heartache, what we give and what we give up when we become entangled in another, The Nave seeks representations of the
contradictions and strengths present when two individuals form a pair.
