FETISH OF THE IMAGE
„Rather an image than a human being”, one might say about the bodily disguised silhouettes. Indeed, once filmed, the masked characters turn into Mitchellian visual representations; timeless, virtual, uncannily personified images that, strangely, seem to own and express desires. The disguised personas are speechlessly and endlessly making ambiguous gestures that express both, self-adoration and narcissistic, erotic desires in uncanny and hypnotizing manner. Simultaneously, the characters seem strangely perplexed, as if they were lost in time and reality in the strange, never-ending pursue for understanding who they are and what defines them.
