INQUIÉTANTE ÉTRANGETÉ

FRANCE. 2013


A STRONG PEACEFUL TENSION


THIS SERIE WAS CONCEIVED TO BE EXHIBITED IN A CONTEST FROM THE TOWN HALL OF THE CITY OF PARIS IN 2013.


THESE 14 PICTURES WERE EXHIBITED WITH THE PURPOSE OF ARISING THE NOTION FROM PSYCHOANALYSIS CALLED " INQUIÉTANTE ÉTRANGETÉ. ( IN ENGLISH CALLED  "UNCANNY").


THIS CONCEPT REFERS TO SOMETHING THAT IS STRANGELY FAMILIAR, RATHER THAN JUST MYSTERIOUS. SOMETHING THAT WE KNOW OR SEEM TO KNOW... SOMETHING THAT WE UNDERSTAND, THAT WE ARE AWARE... BUT WE IGNORE. THIS TERM WAS FIRST EXPOSED BY FREUD IN HIS ESSAY "DAS UNHEIMLICHE, AND STUDIED AND APPROACHED FROM DIFFERENT SCIENCES SINCE..


IN THIS PHOTO SERIE,  SERGIO WANTS TO SHOW THESE MISTERIOUS SIDES OF OUR LIFES... CERTAIN AMBIGUITIES AND CONTRADICTIONS THAT WE ALL HAVE..


SERGIO CANEDO TRIES TO SHOW IN THIS SERIE THIS VULNERABILITY OF HUMAN BEINGS, WHEN WE END UP BEING CHILDREN AGAIN, AND WE END UP BEING HUMAN BEINGS  UNCAPABLE TO KEEP ON WALKING, MAKING DECISIONS OR MAKING "THAT STEP" THAT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN IN ORDER TO GO.


WHY WOULD WE HESITATE TO WALK IN A FEILD WHICH IS KNOWN FOR US? WHY WOULD WE STOP?, WHAT ARE THOSE UNKNOWN FEILDS THAT WE FACE DAILY?.... HOW  FAMILIAR ARE THEY? HOW UNKNOWN?


FEAR AND FREEDOM SEEM TO BE TOGETHER IN THIS SERIE.... AND THE FEELING OF  STRONG PEACEFUL TENSIONS IS PRESENT IN ALL OF THE PHOTOS.


A HOUSE WHICH IS ABOUT TO EXPLOSE, AN ANIMAL WHO IS ABOUT TO ATACK, A SIGN WHO IR GIVING US INTERDICTIONS... A GIRL WHO  DOES NOT DARE TO JUMP, OR WALK... OR ENJOY HER CHILDHOOD AND HER LIFE.
