Multimedia installation, 2011/2013
The multi- media installation “If someone is going to play my part”, shows the results of De Boer’s project, which was a research into roles and identity.
The work questions the concept of the self. In this project De Boer uses the interview as a method to come closer to one’s mental world. The
questions explore what an actor should know in order to be able to play the interviewees.
In the installation 'if someone is going to play my part', the viewer can perceive the other by listening to audio descriptions and by viewing performances on video.
The two media cannot be perceived simultaneously. The different ways of delivery and presentation evoke a crack in how we perceive the participants.
