Przemek Wegrzyn - The spring

3:20, 2011, Video Art
Black man changes his identity in surroundings of miraculous forest scenery. He changes into a white man. Context and environment refers to beliefs of healing, mystic power of nature. The change itself reveals the problem of dissimilarity and isolation of ’the other’ in European society and the problem of European ethnocentrism. The absurdity of the situation increases the sense that we cannot escape from our identity, and also shows a disproportion of relation between periphery and center.
