Decisions, 5:06 min, Stereo, Germany, 2014
Marte Kiessling studied Fine Arts in Hamburg and Reykjavik, currently living and working in Berlin. She is an artist and a curator and works with the performance group Global Alien. Most of her time she spents travelling, where she developes her new video pieces, drawings and installations.
The work narrates decisions that my great-grandmother made during her life. These decisions influenced the future and the destiny of my whole family, up to the current work and social status of me as an artist nowadays.
The images are taken from my personal archive and the internet.
