Article “Pathology of the Image”

Pathology of the Image
Article by Fred L’Epee


Image.
Concept.
Psychology.

"Pathology of the Image" by Fred L'Epee

The image is a process that will never stop. We belong to her as she belongs to us. We film it. We look at it. It forms the expansion of us even. Our private impairment. The image is a psychological movement of gesture, act and its temporality. But the image also creates a pathology which influences psychologically our daily forms and our functional modes. Reversible as the symbolism of a mirror and dominated by the fascination of beauty and its opposite; the endless Aidos. Refusal and virtuousness of the body. It persecutes our existential and metaphysical pulpit to corrupt definitely the material which is our body. Definitely. The image and its movement. Picture is its expansion. A charming game became established there.

In my latest films, I explain the metaphysical presentation of the body, the loss of its form by its impairment. The image and its pathology when the body lose its form to become shapeless. This is some essential databases from the introspective research into the individual and the positioning of its corporate name. The influence of the image can only intervene when its representation is playing a role of psychological moderator. There is a visual launching.

The image becomes an imposing abstraction on our ways of life; and our cogitation. As a feeling and; the willingness to reassert laws. In reaction; we re-create a reaction. Like a matrix; we use it to imagine our freedom, our shouting, derive or social struggle. We belong to her as she belongs to us. This is our expansion. Our private alteration. Definitely, the charming game became established.

The image is a first form of solar love which is like a cloud that floats above the liquid element. Metaphysical exhibition which sometimes becomes storm, falling on the earth as rain while lightning smashes the layers of the atmosphere. Then the Body loses its likeness with form to become Shapeless.

Borderbody | Mixing cities and identities (Poland 2013)

 

BorderBody | Mixing Cities and Identities – Poland 2013
Opening: October 4th, 2013

 

borderbody| mixing cities and identities – poland 2013

 

BorderBody | Mixing Cities and Identities, festival of photography, video-art, computer graphics, architecture, installation and performing-art, will be held in Gdynia (Poland) at Gdynia InfoBox – Observatory of Changes, from the 4th to the 18th October 2013. Thirty-four artists, from different countries, have been selected to be part of this project.

BorderBody” festival is composed by two sections: “Mixing Cities”, which deals with modern urban changesand their influence on citizens, and “Mixing Identities” focused on the hybridization of social identities in contemporary time. The selection was based on the main concept of fluidity, motion, changing networks and cities transformations. In contemporary society boundaries are getting more and more fleeting, and also the identity; what makes every person or place a recognizable entity, turns out fluid, multiple, making the cultural, religious, ethnic borders changeable too. This change, this mutation has allowed to cross the inside of the identities creating new possible crossings, new blends. And it’s just this “contemporaneity” that makes our civilization conceived as subjected to a process of continuous evolution and cultural hybridization. There is no more limit between an identity and the other one but it is possible to walk, to cross a passage and to find oneself halfway through it, in a non-place, in a non-identity. People, backgrounds, societies, progress and all their inputs creates hybrid identities, modifying each other and being mixed in prospect to shape a better world. Mixing sustainable transport; modern (ICT) communication infrastructure; sustainable economic development; and wise management of natural resources, human, intellectual and social capital, is the key to reach a future better life quality. Changes are always positive and they represent our future.
