The Uninvited

The Uninvited places the viewer in front of an anonymous, elusive face, a distorted representation of some of the ghosts that inhabit our unconscious.

An observer / observed that sits in a state halfway between the real and the imagined, between remembering and forgetting, between life and death.

This work invites viewers to immerse themselves in an abstract world, built by the only possible tool to shape the distortion.

Director Statement

I make experimental videos using the sound as a "script" in the construction of non- narrative pieces.
These audiovisual pieces provide poetic and sensory experiences in a dialogue with the unconscious by evoking chaos as a place to live endless possibilities.
I work in collaboration with local and international sound artists in blending images and sounds to create a microcosm that can trigger poetic experiences which will rely solely on the viewer’s perception in the most original and profound sense of the term.
