PSYCHO is a piece about two almost identical cinematographic sequences (the movie Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock and the homonymous remake by Gus Van Sant, made in 1998). What appears when two different but almost equal things are seen simultaneously?
PSYCHO is a piece about the anatomy of two images and their skinning. PSYCHO is a way to expand time of each body and make its weight present. PSYCHO is pausing the flow of time and rigorously observing the moments and details of what is happening inside. PSYCHO is a mirror game. PSYCHO is about the doubles. PSYCHO is a copy plus its original. PSYCHO is much more than a remake. PSYCHO is a drop of blood falling on a puddle of blood. PSYCHO are green and gray horizontal lines. PSYCHO has to do with the third man. PSYCHO is a third body.
PSYCHO, as well as Make It, Don't Fake It (2018), is part of the Asleep Images research project, which asks: can a person itself store, be, represent and reproduce cinematographic content?

Ángela Millano
Ángela Millano is interested in the body, its possibilities and the ways we talk about it, as well as the way in which it is understood, cataloged, managed and legislated in our society.

They have been shown in La Casa Encendida, Dock 11, Azkuna Zentroa, English Theater Berlin, K3, DANCE IN RESPONSE, and Leal.Lav. Since 2017, she’s been developing the project Asleep Images together with Julián Pacomio, with residences in La Caldera, Tabakalera and Atelier Real. Since 2018, she’s been working with Pablo Fidalgo in Anarquismos (Por el medio de la habitación corre un río más claro), which was premiered at the BAD Festival. In 2019, she begins a new solo, with residences in La Poderosa, Desfoga and Espacio DT. She has also worked with Alexandra Pirici, Johanna Bruckner, Matias Daporta, Hanna Kritten Tangsoo, Isabelle Schad and Idoia Zabaleta, among others.
