The LARVA Society of Psychical Research presents the Artist as a medium accompanied by the figure of Dr. Harry Price (1881-1948), the well-known ghost hunter, psychical researcher and author. A séance is taking place in a studio/library, along with a small group of Sitters, members of the Society of Psychical Research. Prices position in the séance is to measure and record the medium/artist abilities. During the Sitting, ectoplasmatic tissue it's produced by the artist/medium. The regurgitated ectoplasm covers both of them in a tribute to Magritte's "Lovers", and reenters her body at the pick moment of the narrative.
