111016 Beatriz Inglessis
The primary scene : cabinet panoramic
11.10.16 SUN - 11.11.18 FRI

In psychoanalysis, the primal scene refers to the child witnessing the sex act between his parents and relates it to the very moment of his creation. It is assumed that this episode has a strong impact on the psychosexual development of the child as it forces him to confront, for the first time, the terror of his origin. "The Primal Scene: Cabinet Panoramic" speaks of the need to face the mystery of the unknown source of our existence and the terror of witnessing what we don't really know.
