M. is 71 years old. Alzheimer’s disease has transformed her mind and body. Her world is full of noises and whispers. Sometimes thoughts come out of her mouth, revealing a disturbed reality. BARK portrays this woman’s bath routine. Submerged in a bathtub, M. lets her body lie there, while an imposing black woman rinses her, rubs her... accompanies her and contemplates her. Arms, legs, skin, bones. The inventory of a body consuming itself. A body that dwells in another time and place.
