TORRES, Sofia. The Uncanny in the work of Michaël Borremans. Estúdio [online]. 2018, vol.9, n.24, pp.154-167. ISSN 1647-6158.

From the text of Freud and taking into account the aesthetic genesis of the Uncanny concept, it is proposed a reflection on its conceptual and practical viability inside the pictorial work of the painter Michaël Borremans. The paintings of this author focus essentially on a thematic allied to the human being, but always containing a surrealist atmosphere, which illusively creates images of a strange familiarity, full of melancholy and strange forebodings. Starting from the analysis of several paintings, it is intended to think about the author's approach in terms of the rhetoric of the image, and how the uncanny manifests itself in the fragile dichotomy between what is perceived and what is conceived, in the suggestion but constant negation of a palpable readability, not only by the theme used, but, essentially, by the creation of ambivalent narratives that arouse the feeling of something threateningly strange.
