I’m Nobody, Who are you? opens tonight

I’m Nobody! Who Are You? by Maya Ciarrocchi

Originally presented at The Chocolate Factory, I’m Nobody! Who Are You? is re-conceived for the New York Live Arts Ford Foundation Live Gallery Wall. The installation is comprised of a series of life-sized video portraits, presented in pairs, of individuals who are connected directly or tangentially to New York Live Arts. The work breaks boundaries by allowing the viewer to observe other people for longer lengths of time than would exist in standard social conditions. By observing paired portraits, viewers create relationships, and consequently narratives, between the participants despite the known conditions of the filming. I’m Nobody! Who Are You? challenges the viewer to consider how they construct their appearance for others and respond to the same construction of others. Ultimately, I’m Nobody! Who Are You? asks viewers to consider the artificiality of their assumptions about communities, individuals, institutions, and the arts.
