SYNOPSIS

In the video performance the artists stands in an empty space in front of a wall. A projected text in English is being written over her body: "I am a Muslim I am a Muslim I am a Muslim ...". The statement is repeated until it fills the entire wall. The artist stands quietly, she has a loosely wrapped scarf around her head, and smokes a cigarette. After some time she removes the scarf and starts loudly declaring "I am a Muslim". She repeats the statement with various affirmative intonations. When the text completely fills out the wall, the artist leaves the scene. With the gesture of the projected text on her body, the artist publicly announces her origin, which as an identity in the local environment could be accepted as a negative thing. By confident declarations, this identity is accepted and confirmed. The empowerment is reached by "crossing the border".
