Alós builds a character out of fragments of her favorite international cinema stars and weaves them with her own personal identity, memory and history: from the past (childhood), the present (adult life), and the future to come; all remembered, reimagined, and reconstructed.
The simple premise of this unique, female self-portrait—a search for one’s self through faces, dialogue, and images from films—becomes a complex exploration of identity and its construction through others. This work is a mesmerizing, empathetic kaleidoscope of cinematic appropriation.
