Påklädningen
BY
Åsa Elzén

The first video shows the complicated process of the artist getting dressed in a kimono by her Japanese friends. The second video is sampled from an instruction video that her friends normally watch before helping each other getting dressed in the kimono, originally recorded from Japanese TV. The work can be seen as dealing with the notion of an authentic femininity and ethnicity.
