My series Gifted/The Most Important Job is about childhood trauma in its most common form: being forced to brush your teeth, dress and undress, eat your food, etc. The works are based on stills from reality tv shows, because they show reality in ways that people can never document themselves while they’re in the middle of it, while they are distorted by the presence of third parties. Just like with childhood memories, the image is distorted more with each observation.
