SENZA TITOLO (Untitled)
2007
video - 3,00 min
The artist tries to fit in a green dress that seems to be smaller then her size. After few attempts to fit in it, she is finally able to wear it and she places herself solidly right in front of the camera with her arms crossed. Slowly, ghost-like characters appears behind her projected against the wall, who are actually part of an old picture. While the characters becomes more visible, a woman wearing the same green dress appears overlapping with the image of the artist resulting in a face with 4 eyes and two mouth (the two faces overlap, until the face of the artist disappears). The picture is of the artists’ her mother in the ‘70s. This movie wants to ponder over the relation between mother and daughter and on the identification of the daughter through the pose that the artist have in imitating her mother.
