video, 2006, Part of the Impostor series + Living Documents installation
In The Chipmunks, my “impostor” Jacqueline van de Geer tells an improvised story from my childhood. Shot in family barn in Fallbrook, Ontario, the piece provides a sincere and humourous look at issues of identity, memory and authorship.
