The Big Girl

Video / Installation

How would it feel to be tall?
Big people have better lives. They don’t have to worry to go outside. Hardly anyone dares to block, threaten or shout at them. Their bodies, their looks are the protective shield.
So, I decided to be a “big girl”.
In the video, the picture moves in the shadow. The shadow shows different images. It mimics a typical monster gesture, it dances, or gets even bigger than fixed frame. Like an unknown monster in the film “Norsferatu” or Plato’s cave allegory. But the shadows have no body. The image without a body is not a threat. It’s just a specter of something.
