Enduring portraits

Still from video titled Enduring Portraits, 2008.

Enduring Portraits was commissioned for the exhibition Time Code at Bologna Museum of Modern Art in 2008 curated by Alessandra Pioselli and Fabiola Naldi.

The video depicts a portrait of a female face ageing. The video consists of samples from two women, mother and daughter. Enduring Portrait has been screened using Isadora software, with a gradual change made out by 25 subtle variations. The length of each stage of “ageing” was adjustable making the length of screening variable, adapted to the different locations. This made the artist able to change the “the ageing process” in the different venues the work was screened; from 8 hours runtime to 4 hours etc. In addition, the work has been exhibited at Audio Visiva, Milan, 2008, The Ritual of walking in a circle, Ephemeral Sustainability, curated by BEK at S12 Bergen 2012 and at Hanseatic videowork, 2014.
