Inside

'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.
