Descrizione Opera / Biografia


’Inside’ is an appropriation of Luis Bunuel’s Un Chien Andalou inspired on its most notorious sequence of Simone Mareuil’s eye being slit.
Ninety years after that, Patricia Borges explores several material resistances under the same move with the razor to create a new fictional piece. As the barber who witnesses the moon being crossed over by a cloud she physically explores Lorca/Dali’s term Natura Morta.
The recurrent mechanism is paced on a somnolent state. The same passivity and the character’s abandonment is constantly repeated.
Invoking the ideas of similarity and difference a new soundtrack was created in opposition to the classic Tristan and Isolde by Richard Wagner. Using modern instruments, we have the same kind of religious and distant music.
(Unintended: There was a letter from Bunuel to José Bello on Feb10,1929, where he reveals an alternative title to the original film: Defense de se Pencher à l’Intérieur)
