Point of View Into Vanishing Point Cristian Marin
(how to dismantle the deja-vu)
The place where the point of view meets the vanishing point is where my work is looking for/at.
The 'head' is often the figure for that place, a fault line between past and future. A point of view is an interpretation, a built up of sediments (memories, recognitions), a tip of the past. A vanishing point is a projection, a future destination - necessarily imagined.
I am interested in that moment where disruption from repetition - recognition occurs. From life sustaining cycles to habits, routines, rituals, addictions we are 're-' beings (re-petition, re-presentation, re-action, re-cognition, re-incarnation, re-creation, re-search, re-enactment, re-quest, re-pair, re-cycle, re-tired, renouncement, re-announcement, revolution, re-evolution, revival, renewal, repression. 'Real' would be an alien element here).
We are appropriated by the inflationary flux of images (we used to own the direct intake of sights). Now is a post-deja-vu era. Everything turns quicker into cliches and this is rather a good thing as cliches are to be re-cycled as entities in the next visual language.
And this is the proposed strategy here: a re-making of relationships between cliches.
