"To the category of the wonderful and uncanny we may also add that strange feeling we perceive in certain moments and situations when it seems as if we had already had exactly the same experience, or had previously found ourselves in the same situation.
...I believe that it is wrong to designate the feeling of having experienced something before as an illusion. On the contrary, in such moments something is really touched that we have already experienced, only we cannot consciously recall the latter because it never was conscious. In short, the feeling of Déja-vu corresponds to the memory of an unconscious fantasy."
Sigmund Freud, The Psychopathology of Everyday Life (1901)
...After a busy last year, and some time spent gathering inspiration, we are pleased to announce that we are working on a new series of photographs and short films.
The new work is happening very naturally, yet is challenging aspects of our collaboration that we have not faced before. We are delving deeper into the concept of duality and singularity, evoking a feeling of the uncanny, and building up a body of work that is both visually rich and thought provoking.
More will be revealed in due course...
