So Are You

Paul Wong

1995, 28:00 minutes, colour


Once more racial and sexual stereotypes and prejudices are explored in this complex work, in which narrative fiction is combined with licentious stories about racism or sexism told directly to the camera. The relationship between appearance and reality comes again into question. Without passing judgment, the artist takes us behind the elaborate facade concealing our prejudices.
