This research delves into the pre-ontological aspect of 'The Uncanny' and investigates the possibility of its opening up in artistic practice through 'The Failure,' aiming to offer a fresh perspective on the origins of contemporary art creation. It attempts to develop a framework from Lacanism's psychoanalysis and Heidegger's existential analysis. This framework aims to explore the non-experience that occurs in the eternal gap between the viewing subject and the material object (the Real or das Ding) and seeks to address two questions: how to establish a step to trace the origin of the non-experience occurrence beyond ontology in the confrontation between the subject and the real, and how to open up the perceptual existence of non-experience as a 'Missed Lacking' in artistic practice. Uncanny is a missed of the lack ,the lack is exposed during the re-encounter of the subject with the real, distinct from Freud's definition. This study attempts to establish a form of thinking about the step inspired by Derrida's aporia and the unconscious's relation to vorstellungrepräsentanz. This allows it to cross or slip past attempts to anchor it in an ontological position. Moreover, 'The Uncanny's' pre-ontological position implies the anti-methodological and deconstructionist inclinations.' The Failure' serves as a pivotal step in elucidating 'The Uncanny' through practice. The Failure of the Object Gaze and the Subject Gaze are two perspectives to explain how the artwork opens up the existence of missed lacking in the viewer's perspective by manipulating the gap between subject and object.
