Julian of Norwich was an anchoress in the 13th century and the first woman to write a book in English (which she wrote in secret). It was about her visions and commune with Christ, as a woman she was able to form a close alliance with Christ via bodily fluids. Christ’s crucifixion weeping wounds and Julian’s tears connected and made common ground, she was able to get close to God via her feminine leakage. Dominique’s animation demonstrates crying in multiple abstractions and in doing so demonstrates the flexible, magical and watery attributes of the positive feminine body.
