video, 26' 10''


video made in manner of TV documentaries using media for self-promotion

I invited people of different vocations to describe their impressions of me and my work in front of camera participants:

Božo Majstorović - Director of the Art Gallery in Split

Blaženka Perica - art historian

Damir Sokić - artist

Marina Viculin - curator

Jasmila Žbanić - director

Leon Lučev - actor

Dario Gregov - commander of Zlarin Volunteer Fire Company

Boris Greiner - writer

the documentary reveals my great success in art world, as well as some details from my private life, my education and childhood and my public engagement

in carefully chosen words, they talk about my acting talent (I'm compared to Robert De Niro and Marlon Brando), knowledge of linguistics and literature, saved lives and protected property in fires

half-truths, fabrication, exaggeration and glorification with no bases in reality - are presented as facts

the visitor/observer is manipulated into believing that he or she is getting to know the true and undistorted image of author

as part the project "Photo of Sound" the Third Programme the Croatian Radio (Hrvatski radio), audio version of this work was broadcasted as radio show; the Croatian Radio co-produced it tissot watches
