"Ich bin´s" ("It´s me")

Freya Hattenberger

2005, 06:50 minutes, colour, German


Standing in front of the mirror, I empty a one liter bottle of Coke. After each gulp I burp and hence say to myself: "Ich bin´s" ("It's me") - a statement which is an act of self-affirmation, self-insurance, and self-questioning all at once. Then, I place the bottle at my mouth to drink again. My burps become stronger and one can watch me struggling to gain control over this reflex. A subtle and honest game between a teen-age burlesque and a real existential crisis.
