Ingrata Bergman – Siete Años De Mala Suerte – Spain
Siete Años De Mala Suerte is an ode to the breaking of the mirror. An AI voice double of the artist narrates a poem that condenses the traumatic experience of surrendering to other’s desires, with the loss of identity and self-steem that brings along. This piece is an invitation to look away from the mirror and the digital mirror a screen is, because even seven years of bad luck are better than a life of slavery.

Her work explores the body as a political subject and perception as a social agreement. She is currently working as a researcher and animator at Karlsruhe’s Institute of Technology.
