Just like a shell, Stella depicts the way human beings act towards each others. The dialectic of the inner and outer space is transfered to a dialectic of opened and closed space. Stella is simultaneously a reference to Man Ray’s “Violon d’Ingres“ with an essential difference: here, the envelope and not the woman represents the instrument of pleasure. With no instrument but just an empty case, the objectification isn’t viable.
