Film, SI, 2007, 5′ 23″

A migraine self-portrait of the artist. The entire video, from filming to montage, was made during a migraine seizure. Camera is static, video- and audio effects are made to present the state of a person suffering from it. The work focuses on the question whether a larger number of women hurting from migraines compared to men is caused by social or biological predispositions. In the ages between 35 and 40, the ratio of the sufferers is three women to one man, but in childhood the occurrence is equal in both sexes.

Film is part of the group exhibition Cheers to Women! 25 Years of Film and Video.
