Just My Own

Video Artist: Alena Tereshko

This performance video portrays the esoteric mission of an individual to have meaning beyond biological function or social expectations. Swaying on a foot, hugging and balancing potentially being both someone´s child and someone´s mother ‐ the artist makes a critical attempt to physically embody a role defined by one´s self.
