Mirror Stage. Ophelia (Ana Mendieta VS Rio Grande)

Avelino Sala

This series of works, Mirror Stage, alludes to the Lacanian conception of the understanding of the Self, presenting us with two opposing images in each piece. On some feathers (that material that symbolizes the poetic, the loss, the fragility, but also the fall, the memory and an idea of what the wind can “carry” that is: the infra-light) appear confronted images. Real images of drowned in the Mediterranean, these images confront pictorial, romantic images of the myth of Ophelia in art, from the pre-Raphaelites to contemporary artists such as Lars Von Trier, Ana Mendieta or Bill Viola.
