2019 – Single-channel video, sound, color, 25:55 minutes.
Judith Thurman, Ingrid Rossellini, Anna Siciliano, Marina Sagona, Giovanna Calvino, Anna Funder.
The video Self-Portrait is a group of six interviews with six different women, on six different topics.
Through the words of these women and only through the sentences I would completly identify with, my self-portrait takes shape.
The first two interviews are colored in green, the third and fourth in white and the fifth and sixth in red.
The six protagonists are: Judith Thurman, Ingrid Rossellini, Anna Siciliano, Marina Sagona, Giovanna Calvino and Anna Funder. Judith talks about her upbringing and childhood; Ingrid talks about homesickness and political correctness; Anna talks about anxiety; Marina talks about codependence; Giovanna talks about depression and approval; Anna Funder talks about adolescence and middle age.
