    Video title:
    “Dancing Queen”
    2007, 1: 29

    In today’s phantasmagoria world where surface is depth – memory is who we perform ourselves to be. Dancing Queen explores the possibility of a pure remembrance; where the prick of pain provides a deep religiosity to our notion of the self. This is a performance that is substitute as well metaphor for the self’s identity and the infinite world of our desires – that part of our brain which asks ‘here we are – but why can’t we be somewhere else?’
