SYNOPSIS
In the video ’Black’ a woman is painting her face with a black Magic Marker.
She gradually disappears into blackness of the background. The viewer is like
a mirror to this event. The theme is not so much about race and racism but a
comment on shame. Magic Marker is a symbol for stigma, in a way a violent act
but at the same time a bit comic solution for erasing yourself off the scene.
