Vampires, It’s Nothing To Laugh at
Video Installation
2022

This 3-channel installation uses the figure of a Slavic vampire as a metaphore for migrant identity and otherness. The work explores the notions of truth and fiction by examining various tools that systems of power that seem to allow us to distinguish one from the other. The piece explores issues of colonialism, academic classism and ethics of representation. It tells a story of loosing one’s identity and reinventing onself anew.
