M-E: A VIDEO SELFIEEva-Marie Elg, 15 min, Sweden.
In this video piece, which I call a semi-documentary, I let professionals such as psychics, therapists, astrologists, palm and tarot readers as well as a hypnotherapist and a dream interpreter define me. All they know about me, prior to our sessions, is that my name is Emie.
The video investigates whether they will be able to paint a true picture of me and whether I can identify with the characteristics they ascribe me.
Will they describe a stereotypical idea of a Woman and the current norms associated with that gender? Who is she? What are her dreams, hopes and aspirations? And can I relate to the idea of a typical modern Woman?
