The artists in this exhibition use video to address issues of identity via self-portraiture and humor. Their works may act as documentary and/or personal essay, biography or fictional narrative Ϡin all cases, the attempt to self-represent blurs the distinctions between public and private, truth and fiction.
Employing humor to do this serves as an interesting means of entertainment and also an effective critical device. The equalizing nature of self-critique can often break down barriers between artists, who often act as thinkers/critics/social commentators and the public, often subject of such critical examination.
