Ellen Schippers’ videos: #1, Entangled
I started to put my videos on a new You Tube Channel: 7 Faces of Women. The videos form a selection of my work from the present to the past with themes The Remains of Masculinity, Beauty Ideals, Image & Authenticity.
This work of Theatrical Video Art does symbolize a woman who thinks that she has everything perfectly under control. It shows how she struggles with all the different aspects in her life, symbolized by the tentacles on the wearable sculpture. At the beginning she is in control of all the tentacles. Bit by bit she is losing control and at the end she is totally entangled.
