Cathrine Hellberg from Sweden is currently showing her video ‘The figuration/The role/The character : part 1’ from 2012 in the Contextiles-isation exhibition at Kalopsia Gallery, Edinburgh.
In the video piece you can see how the creator, Cathrine Hellberg, is trying to see how one can translate a whole personality to then give to someone else. In the video we can see how things such as clothing and colours can play a huge role within this discover.
"I worked with one actor to play me in front of the camera, she studied me and I tried to tell her who I was. Under the period of a half year we met and staged different scenarions, often common in my life, sometimes with the help of others (friends, co-students etc). The first part “The figuration” is complemented with to additional partsCharacter”). It’s a play with identity and the construction of it.”
