Carlos Caballero / Andrei Tarkovsky

Andrei Tarkovsky
from The Mirror

My work often has a relation with the Russian filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky. ‘The Mirror' (1975) is one of the most important Tarkovsky films, where the autobiographical story and many scenes refer to Tarkovsky’s memory of his home.
‘August afternoon' (2013) is a piece where the idea of memories and manipulated or ironic past articulates the idea of this piece. The context refers to ‘home’ as symbolic space and mental structure.
