Self-portrait in 5 Vowels

k.g. Guttman

2003, 06:00 minutes, colour, English


"By dissecting the bewildering and difficult process of using words for self-portraiture, Guttman focuses on the physical sensation of communicating through bodily and facial movements instead of through language. Being at a loss for words doesn’t necessarily impede expression."
- Emily Falvey, The Ottawa Art Gallery
