My art is very individual

Watermill Center, New York, 2011
video in a loop

The video shows 5 people standing next to each other when each of them is repeating one word of a sentence “My art is very individual.” in a loop. The viewer is then able to understand the whole meaning after a moment. Actors appears next to each other like different individualities, but they are a part of a certain collective at the same moment. Their positions would become to be useless without the other connections as well as our identity would get lost without involving in any other configurations. Simultaneously the video reflects a position of an artist who expresses himself through his own individual perceptions and reflections inside some wider cultural context that is often formulating a question about an individuality of an artist as well.
