video excerpts

The video is a discourse between the self-identity and imposed identity of strangers. I treat my body as a background for the nationality/identity context. The body-shape limits the men forcing the social mask phenomenon of perception. My face itself is nothing but a form. The content of my experience is constituted by my ability to act and the ‘me’ is assigned in the sphere of the multiple personalities. By changes of the voice, language and facial expression I am escaping my own identity. “Identification” is the opportunity to be someone else. Norwegian, Jewish, Spanish, Scottish, German – all these personalities are superimposed on one real character. The question is who is the real one?
