“As beautiful as the chance encounter of a sewing machine and an umbrella on an operating table.” ― Comte de Lautréamont

La Tercera Mano is a collective based in Berlin formed by Pablo Arce in 2013. Their artistic practice incorporates several media, such as text, engraving, drawing, oil painting, collage, installation, live animation, analog photography and film, and is primarily devoted to the (re)animation of various archival materials, objects and obsolete disciplines, from anthropological myths to early discourses about madness and disease to the psychoanalytic underpinnings of the Bourgeoisie. Inspired by historical cabinet of wonders, pataphysical discoveries, blasphemy & christian iconography, relics of old times & objets trouvés, alchemistic hallucinations, the beauty of anatomy, Svankmajeresk Surrealism and a Bataillean philosophy their art and live animations take you into the twilight of a morbid and grotesque but aesthetically pleasing world
