Volti che si sciolgono, strane anatomie e colori vintage: le illustrazioni di Dromsjel

Questo artista incastra i suoi soggetti in un universo fantastico e distopico.

Le illustrazioni surreali di Pierre Schmidt provocano una strana e duplice gioia, quella data dallo sfogliare le foto di altre persone immaginando allo stesso tempo universi fantastici. Noto con il nome d’arte di Dromsjel, l’artista residente a Berlino dà vita a personaggi dai vestiti e dalle palette cromatiche retrò, e li deforma con portali psichedelici e anatomie impossibili. I suoi soggetti sono soprattutto donne, immortalate nelle situazioni più disparate, dall’uscita tra amici alla posa di nudo. Nonostante i colori meravigliosi e i soggetti sorridenti, le sue illustrazioni hanno qualcosa di distopico. La tendenza generale che hanno queste immagini ad andare oltre l’idea di identità umana ricorda troppo un bad trip per essere considerata solo pura stravaganza.

Slavoj Žižek about nightmare: Nightmare is not simply horror, not simply anxiety, not simply tension. in the nightmare there is always an ambiguity of border-crossing, of externalisation, where you meet an object that emerges from your deepest inside. let's take an object like saliva in your mouth: it's not disgusting/horrible, you can swallow it, no problem. Now, try to do something very simple, spit it out, on some outside surface, and then try to lick it off, swallow it again,all of a sudden it becomes extremely disgusting, although, it's not another person's saliva, you know it very well, it's yours. now imagine on the same level your most secret objects of your fantasies, your most secret dreams, by which your whole psychic identity is structured. But precisely because they are so known/intimate to you, you don't dare to confront them directly. So this is precisely what you do confront in a nightmare. #drømsjel
