Understanding the importance of the displacement, redesigning our relationship with time and space; in this article, we seek to think about the intricate relationship among body, image, excess and displacement. Through the images that will be discussed in this article, we will see two perspectives of displacement. Using a psychoanalytical reference, we reflect on the potential of opening/alienation, displacement/ immobility of the subject in the face of these images. First, through the artist Rembrandt’s work: “The Lesson of Anatomy of Doctor Nicolaes Tulp”, we analyze the allegoric body image, once the baroque allegory introduces an excess, the wealth of wastefulness, the multiplicity of the senses in contradiction with the pureness and the unit of signification. At a second moment, we will analyze the work of prosthetics of the bodies, created by the anatomist doctor Gunter Von Hagens, where we acknowledge a bet in the overcoming of the limits and in the perfection of the form, excesses that are peculiar to the contemporary logic. The body, as seen by Gunter Von Hagens, is a body of stagnation/immobility; while the body, as seen by Rembrandt, is a contact/dislocation body, confronting us, thus, with the multiplicity of directions, provoking an opening in the being and, therefore, an effective and enriching displacement condition.
