Next session: Insidious Snake

December 5th 2020

In the last event of this series, we will be watching Clouds of Sils Maria (dir. Olivier Assayas - France 2014) and will continue to explore psychoanalytic ideas on representations of female, this time on issues around ageing, death and narcissism.  The texts that will guide us are Jean-Paul Sartre’s The Time of The World , Simone De Beauvoir’s The Present and the Future, and a seminal paper On Narcissism: An Introduction (1914) by no other than S. Freud!

These sessions are free for Stillpoint Spaces Lab members. Please enter your members code to redeem, or email us at if you do not have a code.

CLAUDIA CELADON is a psychologist, psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, lecturer, and training facilitator. Originally from Brazil, Claudia has been working clinically in the UK and in Brazil for the past 30 years. She has always been interested in the history of psychoanalysis and how it developed, feminist culture and modern and post-modern philosophy. Claudia is also interested in psychoanalysis as a cultural phenomenon, how it can help inform interpretations of the use of imagery in films and photography, specifically in the depiction of women which arise from their social definition. One of Claudia’s main areas of research is the use of language, both spoken and representational, in the clinical setting and in art and films.
