Smasher of sacred idols, destroyer of cultural codes, atheist and sexual outlaw Donatien Alphonse François, Marquis de Sade lived a life of such scandalous excess that he could have been a fictional character in one of his own novels. In reality, de Sade was born into nobility in 1740 with the means and social power to indulge himself in near-continuous debauchery. But he was also a fearless voice for personal liberty and free expression. Attaquer le Soleil (attacking the sun) from Etat Libre D’Orange (ELDO) is, like its namesake, a creation of provocations; animalic and sweaty one moment, soothing and nuzzling another.
