The woman in the portrait is surprised to discover that she is being watched. At first flattered, she wants to impress the viewer but loses herself in the process. She suddenly realizes that she is totally out of sync with her mirrored image and being watched becomes uncomfortable and difficult to relate to.
“Her Self” is a piece about the complexity of being seen or watched, about self images, about getting stuck in self-made roles and the subtle choices we make to stay within our frame.
Existential questions regarding who the mirrored image is, who is the viewer, who is viewing whom and who is “Her Self”?
