'Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.'- Oscar Wilde
In my most recent videowork Persona, my father and I join a spiritual retreat as a means to find peace with our so-called inner self. In a way Persona seems like the most intimate narrative that I've constructed so far, but at the same time it exposes the manipulative power of integrity which can be understood as a means to play a role. Persona in the word's everyday usage (stems from the Greek), is a social role or a character played by an actor.
Persona is now on show at Nest in The Hague during the groupshow Narcissistic Tendencies.
