"My double life" is a video installation made up of several diptychs. All individuals divide their lives into a professional activity performed in order to survive, and their true skills that are unrelated to work. The diptychs show the schizophrenic everyday lives of people swinging between necessity and passion, between a world of work and a domestic world: an art history student who works in a fast food restaurant, an artist on a supermarket check-out, a committed environmentalist who delivers freebies...
