Based on a monologue written by Jan Fabre, NOT ONCE. unveils – through 11 imaginary rooms of a photographic exhibition – the platonic relationship between the subject and a female photographer who, for years, has manipulated his body and reworked it into different entities. The multimedia work is conceived for film and explores the relations between an artist, his work and life, his public, and ultimately, the balance between giving and taking – between dependency and independency.
