MeMyselfandI & Soliloquy

HDV-animations, both made during the Kulturiikauppila Residency in Ii, Finland, 2008

During a two months residency in Wintertime in Ii in the north of Finland I experienced total remoteness. Since I was the only Artist-in-Residency at that time, my only possibility to interact was with myself. The result of these two months are two video works and a big number of drawings, among several slide series.

In the double-projection “MeMyselfandI” and “Soliloquy” I reflected the loneliness and isolation that I was facing. As myself was nearly my only respondent, I started to draw myself over and over again. I started to see myself in every corner of my studio and apartment, I started to imagine voices and talked to myself. The result are different versions of a mixed-media animation with sound that was recorded in the Residency house at night.
