But what the people hate, like the wolf, is the free spirit, the chains enemy, the one who does not pray and haunts the woods.

"Thus spoke Zarathustra"

From Sidney Olcott to Wim Wenders, from Hugo Pratt to the scriptwriters of TV shows Nip/Tuck and The Mentalist, many authors have been inspired by the founding works of Nathaniel Hawthorne, amongst which The Scarlet Letter, published in 1850. His works are also a source of inspiration to Spanish artist, stage director, author and performer Angelica Liddell. Her entire work, from The House of Strength to The Trilogy of the Infinite, reflects her inner sufferings in echo to the violence of the world. 

While in the past it was Religion which censored and rejected, today it is the empire of Reason which dominates our society’s puritan thinking. In a harrowing cry of sufferance, Angelica Liddell, reminds us that humanity finds its foundation in the guilt of the first man. It is from this base that she liberates her torments, which carry the stigma of our infringements to morality and our guilty consciences.
