Helena Dietrich - Becoming Lili

din 03/11/2015 > vri 06/11/2015

Becoming Lili is a film which displays the experiences of a group of anonymous participants, who underwent several sessions of make-over transformations to invent a persona ’Lili‘. In a ritualistic procedure, the artist and the participants conducted a research on the impact of physical presentation. Through make-up and costumes they became hyper-selves, developed other possible identities, constantly on the border in-between being and becoming. In their re-enactment of stereotypical images ’the Lilis’ mirror and deconstruct the expectations of the viewer. The hybrid characters on screen blur the border between fiction and reality and leave the viewer with an estranged sense of self.
