Det är vi
BY
Paula Urbano

A video about how race is performed in everyday life. In a silent speech Urbano turns to a stranger suggesting instead of defining, comparing or judging; to see, hear and witness the ‘them’ in the ‘us’.

About the artist

Paula Urbano

Paula Urbano born 1980. Lives and works in Stockholm. Urbano observes with an intersubjective perspective in her investigative narrative work about contemporary or fictive persons or places. With an interest in postcolonial theory and philosophy her art concerns themes as identity in relation to migration and location.

Starting from a subjective perspective Urbano uses photography, video and installation to delineate a state of mind in times when the sole existence carries a political message.

Urbano leaves her interrogative in the piece for the world to ponder over the eventual discrepancy between perception and representation for the individual not only in relation to the collective but also to memory, a location or to “the other”.
