During an art residency in Turku, Finland, the Brazilian artist Kika Nicolela invites local people to shoot her with a camera and describe her in Finish. The artist subjects herself to the viewer's analysis, mediated through the visual and verbal observations of the people holding the camera. This video is part of the Distant Affitities series, which deals with cultural stereotypes and identity.
