Please contact Galleri Duerr for sales, private showings and collaborations
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.
With visual art as a starting point, Galleri Duerr invites youths and leaders to talk about current issues. Galleri Duerr and the photography gallery Partout Galleri invite you for screenings and conversations with Her Self’s producer/performer Maud Karlsson and director Martin Lima de Faria. Moderator: Lotte Johansson.
Her Self, shown at the Cannes International Film Festival, Art Hearts Fashion New York, Uppsala Konstmuseum 2016 and the Berlin International Film Festival 2017.
