For ‘Moving Identity’ Ilke De Vries gave five participants with psychological vulnerabilities an iPad with which to film their daily lives.Over the next two years they met each month to see each other’s material and discuss content, techniques, and the next steps. ‘Moving Identity’, the result of that intensive process, offers an insight into the creative ways people find for dealing with their turbulent lives.

Struggle (presentation in Kunstencentrum Nona)
Video installation, 5 x HD, 16:9, full colour, 5’ in loop
 
De video-installatie Struggle is het eerste visuele resultaat van het intens samenwerkingsproject ‘Moving Identity’. De installatie bestaat uit vijf flatscreens, waar vijf verschillende films te zien zijn van elk 5 minuten. Elke deelnemer maakte zijn eigen film en toont op experimentele wijze zijn of haar levensloop waarin ze een voelbare strijd visualiseren die zowel binnenin als met de omgeving woedt. Alle films hebben identieke houten blokjes als basiselement waardoor hun persoonlijke beeldtaal en verhaal juist wordt versterkt. Ze vormen structuren en choreografieën die kalmerend en beschermend werken, maar dan evenzeer instorten en omvallen.
 

 

Struggle is part of the participatory video project Moving Identity in which artist Ilke De Vries worked together with five people with a psychological vulnerability over a two-year period.

The participants explored their turbulent existence using cinematic techniques to develop a very personal visual language.

The video installation consists of five monitors, on which five different films can be seen. Based on identical wooden blocks, each participant portrays his own course of live and the struggle that goes with it.
