You are a beautiful person Ti si prekrasna osoba, video installation, HR, 2006

The topic of the film You are a beautiful person is the human desire and need to ‘be good’, ‘be straight’, and is at the same time a provocation for detecting the digression, deformation and deviation from the model of the perfect man. The film is an ironic glance at our readiness to always rather believe the flattery of others than question our own qualities and face ourselves.
In the form of an installation, the work communicates with viewers directly and personally, while trying to flatter them, but at the same time questioning our own idealization of ourselves.
