Director Statement

My videos could be described as ‘‘singing portraits’’. In the ‘‘SONG’’ series a continuous close-up of singing heads facing the camera and performing in real time is accompanied by a musical soundtrack.
Growing up in the 1980s, I was part of the first generation to be constantly exposed to music video clips in a period that also saw the advent of Karaoke in Europe, which encouraged the notion that anybody could become a pop star, an idea that also led to public interest in amateur TV talent contests.
Each portrait contains multiple layers of signification that are open to interpretation. The films are formally similar, yet each portrait is unique and the creative possibilities are only limited by the number of songs in existence and the number of individuals willing to sing them.
