Self-Portrait

performance

Portugal/UK/Sweden

 

Author: Ana Mendes

 

Self-Portrait is a play about Mendes´ identity. Over the years, she collected her personal details and wondered what the role is that inheritance plays in our lives. It could be a police questionnaire, an interrogation, or a manifesto, but isn’t. It is just a Self-Portrait. Perhaps, automatic.

 

Ana Mendes is a visual artist and writer living and working in London and Stockholm. She creates projects in which she uses video, photography, performance, text and installation to speak about subjects such as memory, language and identity. She started her work in performance, when she wrote Self-Portrait, a play about her identity.
