“In the performance like me the act of photographing oneself becomes a perpetual video capture. Throughout the duration of the exhibition opening, there will be running the digital reproduction of a live-streaming-selfie. I seek to find the most flattering picture of me, maintaining it unchanged until the end of the performance. From beginning to end, I am trying to remain stable both in my position in the frame, as well as to my idealized image. Due to the long duration, such a practice is impossible; as time goes by, my ideal selfie, the image of Self, is altered and deformed unintentionally” – Virginia Mastrogiannaki
