The “lamella” is a mythical depiction of the Freudian “libido” conceived by Jacques Lacan. The myth of the lamella portrays libido as an uncanny disembodied organ, shed by the living being at the moment of sexual reproduction. It is an organ, since it is an instrument of the organism. However, it is an “unreal” organ, lacking mass or substance, an indefinitely malleable and indestructible surface that perpetually traverses the body’s instincts of survival.
Inspired by the group’s work on the “lamella,” visual artist Aghi has chosen to further investigate the excessive nature of this disembodied organ in the urban landscape. On several excursions, Aghi explored the liveliness of city life and the barren landscapes of discarded matter, trying to capture possible manifestations of the “lamella.” Aghi is a visual artist who explores the relationship between photography, poetry and psychology
