Aufhebung
(2010)




Aufhebung is the first video research to understand the evolutionary possibilities of the pictorial discipline. Starting from culturally mainstream Manet’s artwork “Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe”, Aufhebung is collocated in a grotesque environment overflowing with corrupt iconographic elements. The synthesized sounds and the rewind of the video-editing creates a sense of inadequacy and oppression, capable of transforming the protagonists as surreal bodies. The tableau vivant is projected inside a picture frame, which can be found in the scene of the video: the intent is to emphasize sleazy situations in wich we find ourselves in our existence.
