Maskerade (Masquerade) / 2001-2002

Video installation


Various people sit one after the other in front of a dressing table. They style themselves for their public performance. During the make-up and dressing up, the actors change into the characters they wish to present to the public. The camera follows the intimate process as a glance over the shoulder of the actor and records only that which is visible in the mirror.
