you call me | 2016 Netherlands

The performance 'You Call Me' discusses the issue of identity and belongingregarding mixed race children. A mixed child myself I focus throughout my works on social and racial structures and the questions of identity and belonging. In this very personal piece I take on the first phase to define my own identity by eliminating the outer influences through their materialistic rejection. A Self-portrait purely based on others perspectives creates a confronting statement and image for the audience and myself.
