Moi–Peau by Runeda

What’s hidden behind appearances, behind clothes or even behind that skin? It’s the skin as an envelope, an interface that made me wonder and naturally brought me to the psychoanalytic concept of «Moi--Peau».

Skin is a boundary between myself and the rest of the world. It is a part of me but I am much more than my appearance; I am a whole story.

What’s hidden behind appearances, behind clothes or even behind that skin? It’s the skin as an envelope, an interface that made me wonder and naturally brought me to the psychoanalytic concept of «Moi–Peau». Without initially knowing about the concept, I found the association of these two words both poetic and moving. «Moi» (Me) as who I am, in all my complexity and «Peau» (Skin) as bodily label, this costume I depend upon and which visually summarises me. I did not want to approach the subject through nudes, but rather be on the edge between the outside world surrounding us and what we are inside. The skin is an image. It’s a fragile outfit, a tailor-made one, it represents all we live through and everything we imagine on top of that. It’s all that hides, protects, denudes or goes through us.

Through this «thickness» and imperceptible texture, I wanted to write the story of a pursuit, that of myself. A narrative fiction of which the red line is a man but also a woman who interact, find themselves, and take care of each other in an extravagant world with a baroque atmosphere, a re-enchanted past, desired and a bit messy like my memories are. I wanted to metaphorically stage the feeling of being in between (two worlds), the fear of intrusion, the abstract wounds, the power of the mirror, the feeling of belonging to a group, the masks that we wear; all those impressions making us who we are, those multiple layers making our complexity.
This series is named «Moi–Peau» with two dashes standing for the the stitches between these two words because there are always wounds in order to accept oneself in this skin.

About Runeda

During his art study, Runeda developed a taste for video edition. His first professional experience was therefore logically as a video editor. This experience has a strong influence in his photographic work ; built as a video fading effect, his work, set as a complex superposition of images and subtle transparency, exposes us from the inside out, and illustrates the complexity of layers composing our identity. Throughout the years, Runeda developed a deep poetic visual tale through elaborated installations mixing multiple media and technics; staging created with self-made sculptures, paintings, and textures resulting in a complex visual experience. Runeda likes to make the invisible visible ; for him the processing is a way to read the raw material, there is no absolute truth, only feelings. He therefore creates distance between the initial photography and its original context, and thus reinforces its narrative strength towards a more baroque experience, pushing the viewer to wonder, question himself and create his own story.
