Self, Cinema No 1

 

Self, Cinema No 1

 

(2007, HDV/Blu-Ray, Color, 3 Min. 13)

 

Performer: Lena Taege

 

Questions about cinema, identity, performance and a dying habit...

The video presents and questions the expressions and gestures of a performer, typical of acting, but also of people in actual everyday life.

These signifiers, used to build and perform a character in cinema, but also to construct and project one's own image in real life, convey a range of possible meanings.

 

The performer’s gaze confronts the viewer’s gaze, for whom an identity is performed.
