About

The Doll's Day is the day when we become the instruments of our memories. The Doll's Day leads to the transformation of the bodies flesh and blood into puppets. The 'mise en scene' of the characters into constructions or using her own blood to create drawings from the film?s characters became an evidence. It was about reversing the film process.

Alice Anderson gazes into the tale mirror to question her past and her identity. "What I try to do in my work is say something about my past. To do that, I construct narratives based on memories and objects that awaken certain feelings in me, sentiments that are often violent. The imaginary dimension of the folktale lends itself particularly well to this reinterpretation of the past.
