Staring at the face of Chloë Sevigny

sevigny peace sign

Staring at the face of Chloë Sevigny on my computer desk top, losing myself in her gaze, considering the care she took to apply her mascara, the tiny gold crucifix, black blazer and some kind of scarf around her neck. The gaze is steady. Her hair is shoulder length and seems almost artlessly cut, or maybe neglectfully grown out. It’s just so informal. Lips thin, and they seem set, compressed, as if she’s been caught in the flare of a camera’s flash at a bad moment, as if she’s got other things to think about, but she’s flashing a peace sign, and so the set of her mouth, her steady gaze, the air of purpose, all are mitigated by the slight downward cast of her head, her broad forehead catching the bright reflection of the flash bulb, her hair reflecting it in highlights. Her vulnerability in this exposed moment.

And I never noticed before what her nose looks like. Like, in every other picture of her I’d seen in passing or examined at leisure, in my unremarkable surveillance of celebrity, I hadn’t ever contemplated her nose. It makes her seem so real to me, that nose of her’s. It’s a strange intimacy. If I were to describe our relationship, what would I say? Entirely imaginary? Entirely virtual? ‘Consuming’ her image – an image afloat in virtual space like a thousand other images of her – I could only exist for her, if at all, as a statistic, a blip on the radar. One faceless member of an army of fans.
