Moving Image / Portraits

Portrait of Gur P.

'What are you saying? What are you doing? Is it a photo shoot?

Is it a video portrait? Is it a screen test? Is it simulacra?

Is it surface? Is it depth? Is it a dance?

Is it symbolic? Is it reality? Is it fashion?

Is it production values? Is it mime? Who is performing?

Who’s playing who? Is it a pathological? Is it voyeuristic?

Is it exquisite? Is it for the hell of it? Is it decoration?

Is it exploitation? Is it a bad pun? Is it exhibitionist?

Is it movement, colour, sound, fascination?

Is it bogus? Is it conceptual? Is it a love story?

Is it archetypal? What is dramaturgy? 

Where am !? Who is he? It’s not personal?

Is it?'
