Mies Afraid of Red


This exhibition of cinematic imagery puts into practice Freud's concept of deferred action ('Nachtraglichkeit'), taken from his book The Uncanny. Taking one image as a trigger, the artist begins to explore the affect of cinema on our memory and subconscious.

The artist recreates a remembered scene that has reoccurred in dreams, which is a response to the viewing of Ola Kolehmainen's 'Who Is Afraid Of Red' (2002).
