Hybrid Sphinx

video-projection 3 x 4 m, 2,2min, acting by A. Laure Obertson

presented for Zeugma exhibition, Rethymnon, Crete, October 2006

(originally in Greek and Turkish)  

man is the measure of everything /this leads me to a notion of an endless riddle about my own fate /

My face, my legs...how do I look like?

a sphinx? a woman? an animal? a mutant? My definition of man is not a riddle. It comes out of my dispair about language...

so many thoughts coming out now / language is my gratest problem / some days seem to pass rather slow now...
